In recognition of International Women’s Day and the global call to action for gender parity, Meraki Hospitality Group has partnered with Cristina Lopez McLauchlan from The Vibe Tribe to share the stories of six entrepreneurial women and how their life experiences have made an impact on how they do business.

Hosted at Uma Nota, enjoy a selection of canapés and drinks while listening to six women tell their stories on how they actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.

Meet our speakers:

Olivia James - Founder & CEO of LUÜNA Naturals, Natalie Chow - Founder of Lacess, Gabrielle Kirstein – Founder & Executive Director of Feeding Hong Kong, Riya Chandiramani – Artist and Designer, Laura Offe – Co-founder Meraki Hospitality Group. Hosted and moderated by Cristina Lopez McLauchlan -Founder of The Vibe Tribe.


Meraki Hospitality Group believes in championing women on a daily basis. With 60% of the team made up of women, the company ensures that men and women are treated equally and most importantly that they have the same opportunities for growth.

Part of the proceeds will go to FeedingHK, an organization led by girl boss Gabrielle Kirstein, Hong Kong’s sole accredited member of the Global FoodBanking Network (GFN), dedicated to creating and strengthening food banks around the world. This makes FeedingHK a part of a global movement working to feed people and not landfills.
