Embracing inclusion

"Embracing Inclusion" was the subject of a series of events, discussions and an awareness campaign organised by Swire in Hong Kong between September and December 2020 to promote inclusion in the workplace and community. With topics ranging from the empowerment of women through technology, the future of work, LGBT+ awareness and gender inclusivity, as well as awareness and understanding of disabilities, Swire is committed to championing diversity and inclusion as a vital business strategy. The series also highlighted opportunities that can be created if we develop a truly inclusive workplace.

Merlin Swire, Chairman of John Swire & Sons (HK) was a judge for the 'She Loves Tech' Competition for Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau, the world's largest start-up competition for women and technology. The event aims to promote female founders of early-stage tech businesses by supporting them through mentoring, education, networking and fundraising advice.
International Pronouns Day
International Pronouns Day on 12th October celebrated LGBT+ inclusion and promoted the use of gender-inclusive or gender-neutral pronouns. An awareness campaign, including educational material and videos, was developed to encourage Swire staff to understand the importance of not making assumptions about a person's pronouns from their appearance, voice, or characteristics. It aims to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace.
