NGOs of all sizes often look to volunteers and board members to perform vital functions. Understanding what motivates people to volunteer can help your organization effectively engage and retain volunteers.

In this free event hosted by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation, you will learn from University of Chicago Booth School of Business Professor George Wu what the research says about volunteer engagement and how to apply these findings to your organization. In addition to Professor Wu, attendees will hear from Bonnie So, Secretary General, Hong Kong Red Cross, and Sue Toomey, Executive Director, HandsOn Hong Kong, about their volunteer initiatives.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to better engage your volunteers and board members in lasting and productive ways.

Professor Wu studies the psychology of decision making; decision analysis; and cognitive biases in bargaining and negotiation. Wu's research has been published widely in a number of journals in economics, management science, and psychology, including Cognitive Psychology, the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Risk and Uncertainty, Management Science, Psychological Science, and the Quarterly Journal of Economics.
