Women in finance
Getting it right
We want to see gender balance at all levels across financial services firms.
It’s important that our people reflect the society we serve and that we bring diverse attitudes and opinions to our workplace and business.
So we have made a commitment to tackling the specific challenges around gender equality.
It’s a pledge
As part of our diversity and inclusion agenda, we have signed up to the Women in Finance Charter, a government initiative supporting the progression of women into senior roles in financial services.
It’s an undertaking we’ve made to Women in Finance, our people and those who are considering joining us.
We’re taking action
By signing up to the charter, we will:
• Set ourselves a target of increasing our female senior management population from 33% in 2016 to 40% by the end of 2020.
• Publish annual reports, which outline the progress we’re making towards meeting this target
But overall, we want to recruit, develop and keep the most talented, engaged and diverse workforce to build a more balanced and fair industry.
