Women look to business to unlock the boardroom door

Leading business women from the UK, New York and Hong Kong agree that it is the job of the business community to do more to attract women to top jobs, a survey for HSBC bank has shown.


While professional women believe that the education sector has a huge role to play (especially in encouraging young women to study science and technology), it is workplace practices that will make the difference and close the gender gap at the top of organisations.


Released on the 100th International Women’s Day, the survey was conducted to give an insight into how successful business women think the next generation can reach the Boardroom.


Key findings of the survey include:

  • 51% surveyed look to business rather than schools or government to close the gender gap
  • 60% believe men and women will share childcare equally by 2060
  • 63% believe flexible working is the future.
