Upcoming Gala to Celebrate LGBT+ Inclusion

The 2017 Hong Kong LGBT+ Inclusion Index, first launched in 2015, is Asia’s first benchmark on corporate policies and practices for creating inclusive workplaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. In addition to benchmarking performance and providing a ranking of top performing organisations, the Index includes a number of Hong Kong LGBT+ Inclusion Awards to recognize the exceptional dedication and accomplishments of individuals, companies and organisations in promoting LGBT+ equality and inclusion in the Hong Kong workplace and community.

Top Index performing organisations and Award Winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner, in commemoration of International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT). The Gala Dinner will also be a fundraising event to raise funds for promoting LGBT+ inclusion across Asia.

Gigi Chao, Executive Vice-Chairman of Cheuk Nang, will be the guest speaker at the Gala Dinner. Gigi is an active contributor to community organisations including BigLove Alliance, whose mission is to cultivate an all-inclusive society and to advocate for equal rights for sexual minorities. She was recently honoured as the highest-ranked LGBT executive in the 2016 Leading LGBT & Ally Executives by OUTstanding and the Financial Times.

To commemorate IDAHOT, guests are encouraged to wear purple or a touch of purple with their business or formal attire. Seats at this event are limited, and those interested in sponsoring a table or purchasing individual tickets can contact Jessica Boyle ( for more information.
