The School of Business and the Alumni Affairs Office Jointly Organise the Second “A Business Ensemble: Dialogues with Alumni Leaders”

Event Information

Co-organised by the School of Business and the Alumni Affairs Office, “A Business Ensemble: Dialogues with Alumni Leaders” is a sharing series that features distinguished faculty members from the School of Business and accomplished alumni leaders on topics relating to the business landscape and emerging trends around the globe. Following the successful launch of its first event in January 2024, the second event of the series was held on 6 March, attracting over 160 students, alumni and guests to attend.To kickstart the seminar, Professor Cheng Yuk-shing, Interim Dean of the School of Business, welcomed everyone in his opening remarks. The discussion revolved around the topic “Beyond Gender: Impact of Female Leadership and Male Alliance on DE&I in the Corporate World”. The guest speakers offered insights and advice in relation to the pertinent subject matter. The speakers were respectively alumna Kitty Lun (Communication), who is the Director and Head of Creative Shop, Greater China, Meta; and alumnus Andrew Wong (Business Administration), who is the Chief Executive Officer, Health and Beauty, DFI Retail Group. The session was moderated by Dr Monique Wan, Associate Professor and Associate Dean (Taught Postgraduate Studies) of the School of Business.

Kitty firstly shared her experience as a female leader in her field, highlighting that she had been privileged of working with colleagues who supported gender equity. She also observed that the gender balance in traditionally male-dominated positions, such as engineers and data analysts, had been improving in recent years. Riding on male-female dynamics at the workplace, Andrew emphasised the significance of support from male colleagues in advocating for inclusion and diversity. Moreover, he expressed that while women were increasingly occupying prominent positions in the corporate world, many of them were either single or had no children. Both speakers thus agreed that family issues were crucial for achieving diversity, equity and inclusion. They encouraged employees to speak out against unconscious gender bias in the workplace and stressed that raising awareness was the ultimate key to achieving these goals.

Before the session came to an end, audience members excitedly asked questions that showed their genuine interest in the topic. The event was graced by the presence of Ms Christine Chow, Vice-President (Administration) and Secretary, who presented souvenirs to the two alumni speakers as a gesture of appreciation towards the end of their sharing.
