HSBC BRUNEI CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
Friday, 20th March 2015
HSBC Brunei recently hosted a special event in celebration of International Women's Day (IWD), which was held at the Bank's headquarters in Bandar Seri Begawan.
The event was attended by the Bank's employees and Senior Management members, Lyndsay Rajah, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management and Salyrahrinah Yahya, Head of Global Banking and Markets.
Following this year's official theme, 'Make it Happen', the event's agenda aimed to celebrate the achievements of women and also inculcate the understanding that gender should not be seen as a barrier towards success.
Attendees participated in an informal discussion with invited guests featuring prominent females in the Bruneian Community, namely Anyati Abdullah Orcullo who is an established author, entrepreneur and a fashion designer who has made major contributions towards the Brunei Malay Wedding scene, and Puan Hajjah Mordiah Hj Jakia who is currently the Brunei Commissioner for Women's Rights as part of the ASEAN Commission.
The dynamic husband and wife duo from 'Hip N Healthy', a food-seller aimed at healthy eating, were also invited to showcase a healthy and organic food demonstration.
Celine Andrade, Head of Human Resources, HSBC Brunei commented, "To borrow a quote from Stuart Gulliver (Group CEO of HSBC) - 'The most successful organisations are those that allow and encourage the best to rise to the top - regardless of background or gender.' HSBC Brunei is fully aligned with this philosophy; 65 % of our staff are women and it is reflected in all levels as 57 % of our senior management members are women. We are happy to take the opportunity of the IWD to celebrate women. We hope that our invitees who are great, inspiring examples of people who "make it happen" will encourage our staff (men and women) to not judge people on their gender but on their capabilities."
Sherlly Tanara, from the Bank's Retail Banking and Wealth Management division shared her views on the event, "What I enjoyed the most were the speakers. Their insights were an eye opener and I valued the opportunity to speak to them personally after the event."
HSBC staff also received specially commissioned umbrellas emblazoned with the 'Make it Happen' hashtag to officially commemorate the day.
HSBC is committed to building a culture where all employees are valued, respected and where their opinions count. Diversity and Inclusion is central to our brand, driven by our desire to ensure we all connect with difference for a diverse and inclusive work place.
