The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) recognises the importance of instilling equal opportunity values in the younger generation from an early age, in order to build a truly inclusive society. The EOC first introduced a youth programme named Youth Challenge in 2002. Running annually, the programme provided young people with opportunities of learning how to challenge stereotypes and overcome barriers of gender, disability, family status and race to reach their goals. In 2010, the EOC opened the “Youth Challenge” facebook page to reach out to more young people. The programme was revamped and conducted in a new format in 2018, and was renamed “Generation i”, with the “i” meaning inclusion. This new programme aims at engaging Hong Kong’s secondary students to participate in experiential activities related to diversity and inclusion, with a view to encouraging them to combat discrimination and spreading related messages across different channels.
In March 2017, the Equal Opportunities Commission launched the “EMbRACE” Campaign, which is an ongoing public education and publicity initiative to promote racial equality. The EMbRACE Campaign, a play on the words EM (Ethnic Minority) and RACE aims to encourage people to respect, value and support racial equality through a series of training and educational activities as well as through our dedicated EMbRACE Facebook page.
Uniquely Me! is a programme for Hong Kong’s English-speaking youths from the Equal Opportunities Commission. With the objectives of encouraging discussions and breaking stereotypes about gender, disability, and race, Uniquely Me! is a fun way for youths to gain a new perspective on social issues and learn from the experience of those who have overcome barriers in their lives.
