About Roland Berger Asia
Roland Berger’s reputation in the APAC region has been growing steadily in recent years, and the firm entered 2022with its sights firmly set on yet more growth, despite the pandemic—particularly in China, where its focus on serving firms operating within the local market sets it apart from many of its competitors.

In June, Roland Berger offices around the world celebrated Pride Week with several initiatives and events. "Your support really helps creating awareness for the importance of equality and diversity at our firm," said Partner Tobias Schönberg, one of the founders of the firm's LGBTQ+ network "Just be". "It was also a great token of friendship and support for our Just be and Just be Friends networks."
Boosting pride and diversity is, of course, more than just annual events. It is an ongoing drive for visibility, equality, equity and inclusion of all.

Travelling 2,000 kilometers to show support
In May, some of the Greater China colleagues set out on a trip of 2,000 kilometers from Shanghai to Longping, a tiny village tugged away in the mountains of Yunnan Province. Visiting Longping was the most recent activity of a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative set up by the Greater Chinese office last year. Since English teachers are scarce in the remote region, Roland Berger colleagues step in as online English tutors for the children attending the village school. Since 2018 the colleagues have been teaching English classes via remote video connection. In addition, consultants paired up with individual students to give them one-on-one tutoring on weekends by phone or GQ or Wechat. In this way, they guide the kids into the world of English from the very beginning. The program has developed into a friendship not only with the children and the school but with the village at large.
