BPWHK’s Breaking Barriers Visit to HSBC Archive Hong Kong

To celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD), BPWHK sisters had a meaningful tour at the HSBC Archive Hong Kong on 10th March.

HSBC’s archives are one of the most important business collections in the world, containing the historical records not only of HSBC, but also of many of the banking industry of Hong Kong.

Thank you Florence Lo, Archives Experience and Outreach, for sharing with us the overview of women in banking history and the fight for equality and progress in the past decades. We are very moved by the bank’s commitment in valuing differences, and measures to achieve a more balance and inclusive workforce. It was such a great and valuable experience for our members!
