Equal Opportunities Commission


EMbRACE Campaign


On March 21 2017, the Equal Opportunities Commission launched the EMbRACE campaign, our brand-new initiative to promote racial equality. The "EMbRACE" Campaign - a play on words EM (ethnic minority) and RACE aims to encourage people to respect, value and support racial equality.

We invite all of you to support and be a part of our EMbRACE campaign, as only through collective action can our society achieve true racial equality.

Corporations or organisations can join this initiative by hosting Lunch and Learn Session on different topics as a way to promote Diversity and Inclusion within the organisation. Corporations or any organisations can also sign a pledge, or put up EMbRACE poster in the place of business. Corporations or individuals can participate in our EMbRACE campaign through our Facebook video campaign as well.

Why Racial Diversity & Inclusion Matter

Hong Kong has a steady increase of people from different races and nationalities which is great for Hong Kong as it enriches the culture of the city. This also means having greater and diverse talent pools which; in return, benefits our businesses by increasing the company’s performance.

This statement is not an empty rhetoric. Global management consulting firm, McKinsey; for instance, has looked into this issue and published their report. In their 2017 report, Delivering through Diversity, it was found, after examining data samples from 1000 companies in 6 countries, that the company which has ethnic and cultural diversity executive teams earned 33% likelihood of outperforming other companies in terms of earnings before interest and tax (EBIT).

Lunch & Learn

Creating diversity and inclusion in the workplace is a conscious and continuous effort. As a way to help organisations to promote diversity and inclusion on the ground of race or national origin within the organisation, the Equal Opportunities Commission is offering Lunch & Learn Workshop, where we will invite different speakers to your organisation and engage in a discussion with your staff members on different topics, such as :
  • The Ethnic Minority Youth of Hong Kong
  • The Ethnic Minority Women Game Changer
  • Transforming Adversity into Opportunity
  • From Conscious Bias to Conscious Effort
We can also tailor make a topic that suits your organisation.

Individual Support

Within each of us lies the key to changing the world around us. We would like to tap into this internal strength and courage of individuals to stop racial discrimination and help create an equitable society. We invite you as a member of society to play your part in creating a better world for ourselves and the future generations by EMbRACE-ing racial equality.
