Pam Kaur

Pam is a Group Managing Director at HSBC, with approximately 950 employees reporting into her within Global Internal Audit, that covers all HSBC businesses, functions and locations globally. She is a member of the HSBC Group Management Board, and attends a number of key group committees, including the Group Audit Committee, Group Risk Committee, Financial Services Vulnerability Committee and Culture & Values Committee.
Pam actively promotes enhanced diversity in hiring and, with a view to promoting equality for all, created greater transparency in promotion, performance management and reward processes within her function. In addition, recognising that many of HSBC’s BAME staff work in some of the smaller audit locations, with more limited career progression opportunities, she has promoted both short and longer-term staff exchanges between teams/locations to enable staff to develop and grow in their careers.
Pam has hosted a series of events for senior women in Audit which has included BAME women, and has spoken at HSBC’s customer-facing events and internal events to celebrate the cultural diversity of the BAME community. She leads the Audit function to enable her senior management team to promote diversity and inclusion through appointment of Champions. This group have hosted events in all regions and have arranged inspirational speakers from BAME backgrounds.
