30% Club HK and The Women’s Foundation release video to highlight the lack of gender diversity on Hong Kong Boards

HONG KONG, November 6, 2018 The low number of women on company boards remains a pressing issue in Hong Kong. Along with the 30% Club HK, The Women’s Foundation have been long time advocates for more diverse corporate boards. Echoing Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s strong call on all listed companies to appoint more women on their boards in her annual policy speech last month, we have taken a fresh approach to address the issue - presenting a light-hearted video “Flipping the Script”, available in both Cantonese and English. With this video, we aim to emphasise the fact that women are underrepresented in Hong Kong boardrooms, highlighting the urgent need for greater public awareness around increasing gender diversity on boards.

The 30% Club Hong Kong launched in March 2013 and is working to bring more women onto Hong Kong corporate boards by:

  • raising awareness among chairs and business leaders of the benefits of gender diversity;
  • inspiring debate and discussion;
  • supporting initiatives to build the pipeline of women in executive and non-executive roles.


The 30% Club Hong Kong recognizes that gender diversity is good for the overall effectiveness of the boardroom – and therefore is good for business. Besides benefiting companies, greater board diversity will also benefit Hong Kong. As a global financial centre with an abundant talent pool of highly qualified women, we believe Hong Kong is well positioned to become a leader in board diversity.
