More than 300 LGBT+ business leaders gathered in November 2018 in Hong Kong for Out Leadership’s 6th annual Asia LGBT+ Senior Leader Summit, sponsored by EY, KPMG, HSBC, and Thomson Reuters.
The final summit session, the C-Suite Leadership Closing Plenary, was hosted by HSBC.
Irene Chu, Partner, KPMG China delivered closing remarks:
“As leaders and employers we have a responsibility to ensure that our people are comfortable in their own skin, that they feel that they have a place in our organizations. Business has a very key role to play, in encouraging governments to address the current limitations in non-discrimination legislation, and in encouraging change in the codes of practice.
The culture and financial bonus that comes to Hong Kong with the pending Gay Games provides a powerful reminder that the LGBT+ community makes an impact on both the economic and cultural sectors of our community.”
