In February 2018 we signed HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, a commitment to improve gender balance across the financial services sector, at every level.
When we signed the charter, our goal was that 40% of senior managers are women by 2021. When this target was set, we had reached 37% meaning our goal was a three per cent increase over three years.
As of August 2020, we have surpassed this target for a second year running with 42.4% female representation in senior management. We are extremely proud to have achieved our target early.
Our ultimate long term goal is to achieve gender parity, so we'll be raising the bar to achieve 45% of women in senior management positions by 2023.
