120 guests of the symposium discuss the employment support plan based on the stories of 6 elderly workers
The Symposium, titled “Empathizing with Elderly in Workplace” was held on 26 January 2019. It brought together 120 participants from cross-sector network to push forward the age-friendly employment environment and policies in Hong Kong.
Three Keynote Speakers were invited to share their unique views on this issue, including: Dr Lam Ching-choi , BBS, JP (member, the Executive Council, Chairman, the Elderly Commission), Prof Alfred Chan Cheung-ming (Chairperson, Equal Opportunities Commission) and Mr Gordon Chick (Community Organizer, Society for Community Organization).
