AVIXA Women’s Council adds Hong Kong group

Hong Kong:

The AVIXA Women’s Council, a global community for supporting and empowering women in the AV industry, has announced the addition of a new local group in Hong Kong.

Formed in 2015, the council now has 47 local groups around the world with more than 860 members. With the addition of Hong Kong, the council now has seven local groups outside the United States. The Hong Kong group is led by Joy Balboa, regional marketing manager for Vega Global, and Heather Li, director of digital workplace solutions for Vega Global. The new group is actively recruiting members and plans to host its first networking event soon.

“We are seeing more women moving into careers in AV and IT in Asia, but there is a lack of platforms for women to network, advance their careers, and find training,” said Balboa. “That’s what led us to work with the AVIXA Women’s Council to start a local group in Hong Kong.”

“We take pride in the diversity of our workforce and industry; it drives innovation,” added Li. “But diversity can only be successful in an environment that recognises and values all genders, races, cultures and differences - that is inclusion. It is our joint task to welcome every person into our industry.”

The council groups support women AV professionals through a multitude of ways, from hands-on training and preparation for the Certified Technologist Specialist (CTS) exam, to networking, mentorship and job training. They also support local communities through volunteer work with food banks, the Girl Scouts and philanthropic organisations.

“It’s really motivating to see the support these AV professionals have for each other,” said Brandy Alvarado, AVIXA Women’s Council chair. “They want to help women reach their professional goals and take the industry to new heights. The enthusiasm from people around the world that want to get involved shows how eager the AV community is to connect, learn, and make a difference.”
