Gabriel has a very strong commitment to HSBC’s global diverse workspace strategy, as the main sponsor of Argentina’s 4 HSBC ERGs. In 2018, he signed up to the UN Women and UN Global Compact WEPs (Women’s Empowerment Principles) agreement on behalf of HSBC Argentina, and since then has been involved in different aspects that make gender balance and equality a priority on the company’s agenda. In 2019, Gabriel led HSBC Argentina’s ‘No means No’ campaign to raise awareness about gender violence and harassment, as well as to make women aware of their own rights. It was the first time that a brand used a characteristic feature of the business – the ATM – to deliver diversity messages in Argentina. Under Gabriel’s leadership, more than half of HSBC Argentina associates are women, with women’s representation in senior roles increasing to 30% from 22% over the last four years. Externally, Gabriel was one of the 12 CEOs to undertake and sign the Leading Men for Change initiative of Upward – Uniting Professional Women Accelerating Relationships & Development. He is one of the five Argentine leaders invited to participate in the INADI (National Institute against Discrimination, Xenophobia and Racism) debates, to share experiences, challenges and achievements in diversity management in the workspace. Gabriel was also Vice President of IDEA (Institute of Entrepreneurship Development of Argentina), which gathers CEOs and owners of many enterprises in Argentina in an annual Colloquium where Gender balance was included in the agenda for the first time.
