A Community Business Initiative

Ivy Wong
Programme Manager, LGBT+ & Disability

 

Ivy Wong is Programme Manager with a focus on Community Business’ LGBT+ and Disability Campaigns. Externally, she is a member of the organising committee of Pink Dot, the largest LGBT+ event in Hong Kong, and leads Pink Experience, a volunteer recruitment program in the LGBT+ community in Hong Kong.

Prior to joining Community Business, Ivy interned at various local NGOs - experiences which have had a lasting impact on her outlook and career motivations. During her internship with the Association of Advancement of Feminism, Ivy co-authored the Women’s Health Information and Medical Service Survey 2013, leading to a keen interest in women’s issues. Following her internship with the Touch Project of the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong, she became passionate about promoting LGBT+ awareness in the Hong Kong community. As the former External Vice President of Queer Straight Alliance (QSA), she recognises the importance of ensuring an inclusive environment for LGBT+ individuals - whether it be students on campus or employees in the workplace. 

Born and bred in Hong Kong, Ivy spent a year doing an exchange study in Brisbane, Australia, a place which inspired her to appreciate the beauty of love beyond racial and gender boundaries. When not working, you may find Ivy training in the park, hiking and climbing on the mountains or travelling with a backpack.
