Women in Finance Charter
We are proud to be early partners of the Women in Finance Charter; a group of over 330 financial employers who have also signed a pledge for gender balance across financial services in the UK. We have worked hard to use our internal learning and development, recruitment and reward programmes to support and promote diversity across our business. 43% of our Executive Board are women. Across the rest of our senior leadership team, it is 42% female. Across our business we are 49% female, 51% male and fast approaching full parity. Our goal for the coming year is to at least maintain these results and of course keep improving these where the opportunity arises.
Chief Customer Officer, Paula Bertram-Lax oversees our diversity initiatives and engages with the Executive Board on this topic so that goals are aligned and the diversity agenda has full visibility
