Singh Hazra

Senior Client Partner, Global Diversity & Inclusion, North America 

With over thirteen years in the arena of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion with enterprises such as IBM and HSBC, Mr.  Hazra has amassed both regional and global expertise  addressing and embedding open minded leadership,  intentional talent attraction, employee  development/retention and establishing brand marketplace integrity.

Prior to joining Korn Ferry, he was the head of Diversity,  Equity and Inclusion for HSBC Bank Canada, where his  role was to enable the bank to operate and compete  locally and internationally by driving an intentional Diversity  & Inclusion strategy aligned to their business performance  goals. Integral to the strategy was successfully embedding  Diversity & Inclusion as a business owned imperative,  rather than as an HR initiative.

Prior to joining HSBC, he was the Head of Diversity &  Inclusion for IBM Canada, where he led IBM’s Global  Emerging Issues Response Team—accountable for  managing real-time global and regional issues, involving  cultural, regulatory and faith-based nuances in the  company’s major and emerging markets.

Mr. Hazra was born and educated in the United Kingdom  and graduated from The University of Huddersfield (UK)  where he studied Computer-Aided Engineering.
