On 10th March, the inaugural Swire Women of Wine Festival ("WoW Festival") was held in Hong Kong, as a grand finale to International Women's Week. The event, co-organised by the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce and The Women's Foundation, was attended by around 300 mostly female guests, and featured a plethora of inspiring seminars, wine tasting workshops and over 50 wines from the city's top female importers. Swire group supported the event as title sponsor, as part of the Swire Women's Network programme – an initiative that provides a forum for talented women in the group to connect with each other and support women's career development. Senior executives from the group also shared their insights and knowledge at the festival. Olivia Wong, Chairwoman of the Swire Women's Network, opened the event with a speech highlighting Swire's efforts in promoting gender diversity.
