Leaders for Women Survey

Leaders for Women Survey 2021

Asiamoney’s Leaders for Women survey recognises the banks that have done the most to encourage women in the workplace across Asia’s financial markets

AMV2.gif

In its second annual Leaders for Women survey, Asiamoney asked banks across the region to self-report women representation across four major categories – the percentage of women employees they have across their bank; the percentage of women they have at two levels of seniority – managing director and above, or the equivalent level, and vice president or equivalent – and the percentage of women they hired in their most recent graduate intake.

The numbers for each bank represent their percentage of women employees, managing directors, vice presidents and recent graduate hires they have across Asia Pacific.

This includes the specific country results, which have used the pan-Asia representation of women at banks that are headquartered in each country, rather than limiting the data only to employees within that country.

Asiamoney got data from nearly 70 banks this year. We used the most recent figures given by the banks, with the oldest data coming from the end of 2020. The numbers were rounded up or down to the nearest percentage point, with half percents rounded up.

The data for Mainland China and Hong Kong was supplemented by information from banks’ public reports.

In the case of several domestic and international banks, a deep retail banking presence in Asia is reflected in their higher female representation in the workforce numbers.
