Teresa has long been a leading proponent of diversity including gender diversity in all walks of life. After initiating the process that led to mandatory disclosure of diversity policies by listed companies while serving as the first female to chair the Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s Listing Committee in 2009, Teresa recently issued a call for gender quotas for the boards of Hong Kong listed companies. She continues to lobby for mandatory diversity requirements to help accelerate the pace of change. As executive sponsor of Freshfield’s Asia Women’s Network, Teresa is passionate about supporting and developing Freshfields’ colleagues both professionally and personally to maximise their potential. She is also a staunch believer in using one’s influence to bring about positive change, whether as trusted advisors to clients or mentors to colleagues and business partners. Teresa is a co-Chair of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s Listing Review Committee, a vice-chair of the IFRS Foundation, a founding member and steering committee member of The 30% Club Hong Kong as well as a member of the advisory board of Women in Law Hong Kong.
