HKEC: Chair Judge - Lord Wei of Shoreditch

November 26, 2014

Introducing our Chairman of Judges - Lord Wei of Shoreditch

 

 

 

Lord Wei — the youngest and only Chinese member in the House of Lords, is a social entrepreneur, interested in social reform, a member of the House of Lords and was previously an adviser to the UK Government on their Big Society project.

 

After graduating from Oxford, Wei worked at McKinsey & Company for three years, where he came to know Brett Wigdortz, who founded Teach First. In 2006, after three years at Teach First and a short stint in social venture capital, Wei joined the children’s charity Absolute Return for Kids (ARK) where he helped to set up Future Leaders.

 

Around the same time as helping to set up Future Leaders, Wei founded the Shaftesbury Partnership, an organisation which seeks to create scalable social reforms. Through the Shaftesbury Partnership, Wei co-founded The Challenge Network, an independent charity which exists to “inspire and enable a generation to lead social change”.

 

On 18 May 2010, Lord Wei was appointed as an unpaid Government Adviser on Big Society. In May 2011, Lord Wei announced his decision to step down to join the Community Foundation Network as a volunteer advisor to help drive the practical development of Big Society ideas in communities.
