HSBC eyes more women holding senior positions

HSBC aims to employ more women in positions by 2025. The bank said it targets 35% of global senior leadership roles to be filled by women. Luanne Lim, CEO of the British lender's Hong Kong arm, said the bank is focused on improving diverse representation through hiring and progression of under-represented groups like women. The bank pledged to take action to improve female representation, particularly in senior and higher-paid roles. Lim said all hiring managers have to complete mandatory training on addressing all kinds of bias. HSBC currently offers its Hong Kong employees 16 weeks of maternity or primary adopter leave on full pay, as well as seven other leaves, including birthdays, marriages, and Covid-19 vaccines, for a total of 31 days.
