Sue Fox, CEO, HSBC Channel Islands and Isle of Man has been recognised in the HERoes Women Executives Role Model List for her efforts in creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace.
A long-term champion for equality and inclusion in the workplace, Sue has since 2018 been a Global Ambassador for HSBC Balance, a programme that promotes gender diversity across the firm.
Sue hosts regular ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions for more than 1,000 staff to help create an open, inclusive and transparent working culture. This year she hosted a virtual panel event for International Women’s Day, sharing her own experience of climbing the executive ladder in a male-dominated sector. Sue is also the lead executive sponsor of HSBC’s Diversity and Inclusion Allies group, which works to cement an inclusive culture at the Bank.
The HERoes 100 Women Executives List is part of INvolve’s global HERoes Women Role Model Lists, which showcase leaders around the world and across multiple industries who are championing women in business and driving change for gender diversity in the workplace. INvolve is a global network championing diversity and inclusion in business.
Commenting on her inclusion in this list for another year, Sue said: “I’m naturally delighted to have been included on the HERoes 100 Women Executives list again. As most of us increasingly recognise, the diversity of our teams and the broad skills and perspectives everyone brings are absolutely critical to the success and productivity of a
business, and it’s so important that we keep diversity and inclusion at the heart of what we do.”
“I remain personally highly focused on helping to break down perceptions, addressing unconscious bias, and encouraging open conversations around all forms of diversity, and I’m so pleased that in my role at HSBC I have a platform to do that.”
