HSBC Enterprise Technology

2023 Shortlisted Nominee
Inclusive Culture Initiative Award


The Enterprise Technology Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champions network came together this year with a shared mission and unwavering commitment to advance awareness and nurture inclusivity. While HSBC has commendable bank-wide DE&I efforts, their goal was to bring this dialogue to their Technology division. This led to their first campaign, ‘Inclusion Week’ aiming to help colleagues understand what they can do differently to create an environment where everyone can thrive, knowing they are represented, heard, and valued. They did this by launching a week of online/in-person workshops, panel discussions and presentations across the globe. This was a campaign ‘by the people, for the people’, driven by a small network, side of desk with no budget, purely fuelled by their passion to drive change and make a difference. This network are already exploring new ideas to challenge perspectives and celebrate differences.
