CGED is one of 14 organisations supporting the Equal Opportunities Commission's (EOC's) new online campaign and virtual exhibition of over

130 original photographic works contributed by underrepresented groups in Hong Kong.

Some of the photographs from the campaign will be on show at the Faculty of Arts' Ground Floor Gallery, G/F, Run Run Shaw Tower, The University of Hong Kong, from March 6-23, 2021 (subject to Covid-19 restrictions).

The exhibition features a total of 14 photographers, and is divided into four sections, namely “Different and Equal”, “Where We Belong”, “Voices of Womanhood” and “Battling Stigma”. The campaign seeks to offer a platform of self-representation for disadvantaged groups, and to address prejudices and stereotypes through authentic portraits of their everyday life. It also sees a first-time collaboration between the EOC and Hong Kong-born Indian YouTuber New Dellily, who has interviewed some of the contributing photographers in a three-part video series.

Established in November 2016, the Committee on Gender Equality and Diversity works with organizations both within and outside of the University of Hong Kong to lead the way on gender and diversity, and realize the full potential of our academic community.
