D&I for financial services

The financial services sector is uniquely placed to make a significant impact on D&I.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion is a regular discussion point and generally agreed to be of importance in the sector. However, significant strides still must be taken to deliver real change and impact.

  • Women are just 20% of executive committees globally
  • 32% progression gap has been reported for Black people from lower socio-economic backgrounds in the financial services sector
  • The Women in Finance Charter, a UK HM Treasury initiative to increase female representation has emphasised the importance of building internal pipelines, rather than simply relying on recruitment to increase diversity
  • Britain’s financial watchdog will publish requirements for improving ethnic diversity in finance.

We are pleased to have partnered with financial services organisations to make a real impact.

Using evidential data and embedding D&I into the way financial services does day-to-day business, leaders in the sector can make a huge impact both inside and outside of the sector.
