MGM Raises Awareness on Social Inclusion
Bringing the Community Closer through Education, Art and Sports Initiatives
[April 16, 2018, Macau] MGM once again sponsored the Conference on Inclusive Education, Sports and Social Media organized by the Charity Association of Macau Business Readers as one of its initiatives in raising public awareness on social inclusion. The Conference, held at MGM COTAI’s Ballroom today, was the beginning of a series of activities planned to further promote social inclusion through art workshop and sporting events within the month of April.
A line-up of international speakers were invited to share insights at the Conference on the topic of social inclusion for nearly 400 audience members from various fields, including athletes with disabilities from Golf Masters, coaches, representatives from local community associations, university students, as well as MGM’s management team members and Volunteer Team. The Conference highlighted the importance of creating a more welcoming and inclusive world for all, where individual differences are appreciated and respected.
Supporting Social Inclusion through Art
On the Conference day, more than 100 athletes with disabilities gathered at MGM COTAI’s Ballroom Foyer for an art workshop. The athletes, accompanied by MGM’s Volunteer Team members and local artists from Art for All Association, collectively created designs for mannequins, motorbike toy models and helmets and more. The activity helped to weave a closer connection between all participants, leading to a better understanding and awareness of everyone’s individual contribution to society with social inclusion at its heart.
Supporting Social Inclusion through Sports
MGM has been a keen supporter to Golf Masters, ever since its inaugural tournament in 2012. Same as previous years, Mr. Grant Bowie, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited, will be one of the officiating guests for the tournament this year.
