Hang Lung launches 'Future Women Leaders Program' in Hong Kong and Shanghai

The ‘Hang Lung Future Women Leaders Program’ was officially announced on 5 September, 2022 by Hang Lung Properties at its inaugural launch in Hong Kong and Shanghai, with partners including The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups Leadership Institute, the ‘Seagull Project’ of the Shanghai Women’s Federation and the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, the Xuhui District and Jing’an District Women’s Federation.
As a core initiative in Hang Lung’s commitment to sustainability, the ‘Hang Lung Future Women Leaders Program’ actively engages the government, industry, and society at large to promote and support women’s development while enhancing community wellbeing.

This nationwide program aims to unleash the potential and sharpen the competitive edge of young female university students, thereby empowering their diversified development through mentorship, leadership training, and an internship.

“I am delighted that Hang Lung is taking the initiative to launch the ‘Hang Lung Future Women Leaders Program’ as an integral part of our endeavors to fulfill our corporate social responsibility,” remarks Mr Weber Lo, Chief Executive Officer of Hang Lung Properties.

“Through the synergy of exchange between elite women – many of whom are our own tenants and business partners – and young female students eager to excel, we hope the program will empower the next generation of women talents to take the lead and make better decisions for the world we all call home,” he continues.

Ms Weng Wenlei, Vice President of the Shanghai Women’s Federation, believes that through the program, young women who are searching for inspiration and empowerment will be able to adjust to the transition from campus to workplace, establish an insightful understanding of career selection and employment, and forge a promising path to take off bravely.

Ms Miranda Wong, Director of The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups Leadership Institute, expresses her delight at co-organizing this pioneering initiative of the Institute with Hang Lung: “Through specific training and exposure the young women receive, they will be able to enhance their leadership and professional competencies, while also reaffirming their commitment to Hong Kong.”

The inaugural edition of the ‘Hang Lung Future Women Leaders Program’ will roll out in Hong Kong and Shanghai, engaging elite women leaders from various fields as program mentors. They will groom 200 female university students, nationwide, to develop personal and professional leadership skills and tap their inner strengths through a six-month mentorship, multi-dimensional training, and community projects.

Outstanding students will receive internship opportunities provided by Hang Lung or mentors’ companies. Furthermore, the program will also establish a more efficient and broader communication platform between young women in Hong Kong and Shanghai through online inspirational talks in pursuit of a sustainable future.

The ‘Hang Lung Future Women Leaders Program’ is now open for registration. Eligible female university students who have strong awareness of self-development and are passionate about community service are welcome to apply for this program.
