Hagar’s Global CEO Visits Hong Kong (July 2017)


In July, our global CEO, Micaela Cronin, came to Hong Kong to speak at events organized by several of our partners including Credit Suisse, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, Macquarie Group, and Female Entrepreneurs Worldwide (FEW). Micaela shared updates on the future strategic direction of Hagar’s work, and how support from both organizations and individuals is vital to ending trafficking and exploitation.
