Mary Coghill (Wicks)
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Mary Coghill (Wicks), WILHK's founding Treasurer. Mary inspired us through her passion, work ethic, and the pursuit of equality. Mary worked in the professional services sector in Hong Kong since the 1980s. Initially working as an accountant, she moved into human resources and worked in the legal sector for over 15 years. During her time with WILHK, Mary helped define the direction and focus of WILHK in supporting all members of the legal community. Her legacy continues on in WILHK’s diversity efforts, and particularly in our focus on promoting flexible work, our mentoring program, and inclusion efforts across the legal profession. She will be greatly missed.
In honor of Mary, donations can be made to the Hong Kong Cancer Fund and The Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care.
