We are a signatory of the Women in Finance Charter, created by HM Treasury, which formally commits us to addressing the gender imbalance within financial services.
We want to be an environment where everyone feels included and valued for who they are. Increasing the diversity of our management teams is an important part of our commitment to achieving this.
We made a commitment to achieve 40% female representation across our management roles by 2022 which we are proud to have exceeded.
- Brionie Hemingway is our executive team member who is accountable for gender diversity and inclusion.
- Our target is that female representation across our management roles will be 50% (+/-10%).
- We will publish our progress against our target annually.
- Our executive team have performance objectives in relation to this target.
When we signed up to the Charter in 2019, we had 27.5% female representation in senior management roles. As of September 2023 that figure has increased to 42%.
Although we have exceeded our target, we continue to remain committed to improving this number through our gender strategy and setting ourselves higher targets (50% +/-10%) until our deadline date of 2026.
