Pride and Prejudice 2019 Hong Kong

Keeping pace with change

Join the Economist 4th annual Pride event in Hong Kong!  

If businesses are to succeed in capturing younger talent, they must adapt to cater to the attitudes of Asia’s
emerging generations, understand the profound social changes underway in the outlook
towards the LGBT community and move into serious advocacy.

What to expect:

Pride and Prejudice 2019 will bring together government leaders, pioneering millennial entrepreneurs, people from Generation
Z who are starting their professional journeys, social activists, business executives, religious leaders and academics. Through discussion, they will determine what inclusive businesses will look like in the future, the role technology will take in advocacy, how businesses and society should nurture young advocates, and how the private sector and government can work to ensure that LGBT inclusion is achieved across the entire region.
