11 HKSAR government advisory bodies now include Diversity List candidates, but greater representation is needed
Hong Kong, 20 March 2018 — The Zubin Foundation, a social policy think tank and registered charity, today launched Diversity List & Community Connectors 2018 in partnership with Spencer Stuart Hong Kong, a leadership and executive search consultancy.
In its third year, Diversity List & Community Connectors is a directory of 31 highly credentialed ethnic minority individuals who are committed to serving Hong Kong through government advisory. From academia and social service to fintech and medicine, the 2018 List features candidates from a wide range of professional backgrounds, including from sectors crucial to Hong Kong’s future development.
For the first time, Diversity List recognises high achieving individuals under the age of 35. The “Youth To Watch” category was created to channel policy ideas in response to Hong Kong’s digitally driven economic transformation and its rapidly ageing ethnic Chinese population. This year sees representation from the Indian, Pakistani, Indonesian, Filipino, Nepalese, Thai, Bangladeshi, Turkish, and
mixed race communities, demonstrating growing appetite among key groups for participation in public discourse.
