LATEST RESEARCH LAUNCH
Standard Chartered Bank Women on Boards Hong Kong 2014 Report


In celebration of International Women's Day (IWD) later this week, Community Business is delighted to release our latest research, the Standard Chartered Bank Women on Boards Hong Kong 2014 report, the fourth study of its kind with previous reports, also sponsored by Standard Chartered, published in 2009, 2012 and 2013.

Unfortunately, the latest statistics do not give us cause to celebrate. With just 9.6% women on boards of Hang Seng Index companies, the needle has barely moved from a year ago when it was 9.4% - nor indeed since we started putting the spotlight on this issue back in 2009 when the figure was 8.9%.

Despite Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing°¶s laudable efforts to promote board diversity, the representation of women on Hong Kong°¶s boards is not merely slowing, in many aspects it appears to be stalling. In this report we look at the progress in other markets °V most notably Australia and the UK, and highlight the pivotal role that Chairpersons have to play. As a result we call for Hong Kong°¶s Chairpersons to make themselves accountable for leading positive change in their board rooms, and outline a number of concrete measures they can take.

This year, we have extended our research to the 356 companies that make up the Hang Seng Composite Index and provided analysis by industry. For more information, please see our press release and download the research materials below.

With many
IWD
events taking place this week celebrating the progress of women in the workplace and society, we hope that our research is a reminder that much more work needs to be done, and that it will inspire both determination and meaningful action.
