Mayer Brown and Women in Law Hong Kong (WILHK) have joined forces to conduct the first of its kind research survey — Everyday Behaviour Project — that aims to uncover the range of behaviours that women in the Hong Kong legal sector have to deal with every day, including gender biases and micro-aggressions: the everyday, subtle, often unintentional comments and interactions that may in aggregate contribute to gender inequality. Accenture Greater China supported this initiative by advising on the data collection, the analytics and deriving key takeaways from the insights generated.

The report lists out the key findings of our survey conducted in 2022 which drew responses from more than 360 women and men who are currently working or have worked in the Hong Kong legal sector.
