Do you want to be the EXECUTIVE DIRCTOR of FINNISH CHAMBER of Commerce in Hong Kong? Apply to Girls Takeover 2022

Stereotypes hold girls back in how they see themselves, how they are treated and the opportunities they have throughout their lives. Plan International has organised Girls Takeover campaigns globally since 2016. By occupying spaces and places where they are rarely seen or heard in, girls and young women demand actions and solutions to ensure all girls can learn, lead, decide and thrive.

Girls Takeover 2022

We are honoured to collaborate with Finnish Chamber in Hong Kong and offer our participant a chance to take over the role of Mr. Otto Tunturi as the Executive Director on 11 Oct 2022, the International Day of the Girl Child. Through the takeover, we aim to change perceptions around what is possible for girls and young women as decision makers, leaders and change makers.
