Virginia Wilson is Chief Operations Officer, Global for OneSky.

Previously Virginia was Chief Executive of The Child Development Centre (CDC). The CDC has served the Hong Kong special needs community for over 40 years. After Virginia took up the reigns in 2005, the CDC now operates an entrepreneurial model as a social enterprise with government subvention. CDC is a charitable organization working for the benefit of the Hong Kong community.

Virginia was the chairperson of the Jockey Club Sarah Roe School from 2008 to 2013, the only English language all-through school for children with special educational needs in Hong Kong. In the same period, she also served as a Board Member for the English Schools Foundation (ESF), the largest English education provider in Hong Kong. She chaired the Communications Subcommittee for ESF, and advised on the steering committee of the Subventions Steering Group of the Board working with the Hong Kong Government.

Concurrent to her work with ESF, Virginia led the advocacy group, Growing Together, lobbying the Hong Kong Legislative Council and the United Nations for the rights of children with special educational needs.

Prior to her work in the education and public service sector in 2005, she held a number of senior positions in media, satellite communication and arts management, including the start-up and sale of STAR TV. Her passion for special needs education and education as a whole emerged when her son was diagnosed with Autism.

Integrating her experience in the private sector and understanding of special needs education, Virginia enabled the first merger of charitable organizations in Hong Kong between the Child Development Centre and the Springboard Project Limited after two years of negotiations and stakeholder engagement.

In 2009 she received a scholarship to attend the Harvard Business School, Executive Education program.
