Promoting diversity in Asia: A return trip!

Ever since we returned from Thailand last year, we’ve been itching to go back to Asia.

We loved our time at Shrewsbury International School and will hopefully be visiting again next year. But it showed us how much more work we could do with organisations in that part of the world.

The next Summer and Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games taking place in the far east. It’s an exciting time in the region for sport and diversity is an important strand within that. So, when we returned from Thailand, we immediately got to work making further connections in Asia.

Promoting diversity in Asia

And we’re happy to say we’ll be back throughout March and April to promote disability sport and diversity in the area.

We’ll be in Tokyo for a week, before heading back to Thailand. We’re then spending a few days in Singapore, finishing up in Hong Kong in time to do lots of work alongside the HKRU at the upcoming Hong Kong 7s!

Our first gig is with the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan on March 7th. I’ll be speaking alongside the British Paralympic Association’s CEO Tim Hollingsworth about how the Paralympic Games can inspire excellence.

We’re visiting British School in Tokyo to get students and parents excited about such a huge event visiting their city. We will also visit the Nippon Paralympic Centre; a fantastic-looking, new accessible facility which will ensure Tokyo 2020 will be one of the best games ever.

A visit to the British Ambassador’s residence in Tokyo rounds off our trip to Japan to carry out some equality and diversity workshops. We’ll then head to Thailand to commence leg two of our trip!

We’re really excited to meet so many organisations while in Asia. But if you’d like to meet to talk about our programmes for international schools or corporate diversity workshops, please get in touch.

We’ll be keeping everyone updated about our talks and engagements online. So keep an eye on my blog if you would like to find out more!.
