We were joined by senior leaders and experts from listed companies and the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (HKEX), discussing accelerating gender diversity in boardrooms and the workplace, and the role this plays in strengthening corporate governance. The session was moderated by Connie Heng, Clifford Chance Regional Managing Partner, Asia Pacific.
The conversation was framed by the HKEX's Consultation Conclusions on Review of Corporate Governance Code, released 10th December 2021, which focuses on enhancing listed issuers’ corporate governance and diversity practices, with proposals to strengthen board independence and promote better boardroom gender diversity.
This panel was organised in partnership with the firm's gender parity network, Accelerate>>>. Clifford Chance is committed to taking bold actions to accelerate the pace of change towards gender parity and drive forward an inclusive and diverse culture.
