Chamber member Monsoon has launched a new event series catering to the needs and interests of men.
The Men’s Forum is an English speaking, non-political, non-religious, non-profit making platform providing infotainment programs for men, specifically the local business community, professionals, entrepreneurs, senior executives aged 35 and above in the higher income group.
The funds raised will support the AWA’s (American Women’s Association) Education & Scholarship program. The programme provides support to 5000+ underprivileged secondary and university students, especially those in Shum Shui Po, Tin Shui Wai and Tuen Mun areas. Research has shown that all things equal, ivy league “rich kids” are beating “poor kids” 8:1 in the job market. They get better jobs with better pay because they have more exposure, are wiser in the ways of the world, & are therefore smarter. The Men’s Forum is part of a program established to address this problem.
Apart from raising funds, the Forum strives to develop a network of potential employers, high earning professionals and executives in the senior management level in an attempt to build up a pool of resources for these students – from simple exposure opportunities, (e.g. a visit to a production plant…) to finding internships and trainee programs for their graduates.
