Focusing on D&I in Asia

Colleagues in Asia have been leading a programme of raising awareness, building an inclusive culture, and driving inclusivity in recruitment.

Junko Kubokawa, Country/Regional Managing Director, and Jeyanthi Krishnan, Asia Regional Counsel, are leading activities across Asia Pacific, which include a new D&I newsletter tailored for the region, a broad action plan to improve inclusion for women in support of the Group gender balance target, alongside a variety of mentorship and training sessions for colleagues. One particular activity focused on understanding the concerns and needs of female employees through listening groups was held in India, Japan and Indonesia. These have enabled more focused actions to be taken such as creating facilities for nursing mothers and reviewing child-care facility partnerships.
