Committees

Women in Business

The Women in Business Programme aims to raise awareness of the importance of gender diversity in the workplace in Taiwan through events and activities under three main themes: Educate, Connect and Celebrate.

Young Professionals

The British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei Young Professionals Programme was launched to provide training and networking opportunities to existing young talent in member companies, connect with potential future leaders and understand the needs of local young talent.

Financial Services

Comprised of member companies from various sectors such as banking and asset management, the Financial Services Committee will share collective input on key trends, events, and updates in the financial services industry and put forward important issues to regulatory bodies.

Education

The Education & Culture Committee will propose themes for BCCT Talent Development Workshops for the year and help recruit providers to host these workshops. The committee will also devise ideas for cultural activities to promote UK culture and education.

CSR and Charity

BCCT has an active program to support its CSR initiatives. The BCCT CSR committee plans workshop series focusing on corporate social responsibility for member company employees throughout the calendar year, and organises events to fundraise and donate to charities.
