'Working Together for an Inclusive Society: LGBTI Rights in Comparative Perspective' was a two-day international conference co-organised by the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC), the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao, and the Gender Research Centre of the Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong on 28-29 August 2014.

Bringing together local and overseas representatives from the academia and legal profession, legislators, government officials and human rights experts, this conference – held for the first time in Hong Kong – provided a platform to examine the issues and experiences relating to the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons in Hong Kong and the European Union. Through the exchange of views on strategies, challenges and successes, the event aimed to heighten understanding on the impact of potential legislation on business, education, religious organisations, and the wider society.
