Diversity and Inclusion Embracing and celebrating our diversity
We view diversity, inclusion and respect for all colleagues as critical to our future success.
Every moment is an opportunity to help someone break their silence
In every interaction with another person, there is a moment where we make an active choice. To share or not share. To ask or keep quiet. To be inclusive or exclusive.
When we’re empowered to make different choices in those small moments, it helps us to connect and build that bridge of understanding, to encourage others and to look closer at ourselves.
Watch the video above featuring our colleauges who have bravely told their stories and join us on our social channels at #EveryMoment as we support International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
Supporting Inclusion and Wellbeing
As everyone is experiencing this global pandemic in a unique way and whilst so many are now working from home, inclusion has never been more important. We have put together a toolkit to support organisations in reinforcing the importance of wellbeing and a culture of belonging during these uncertain times.Find out more
Our culture in action A welcoming environment for everyone
We’re committed to promoting equality in the workplace and creating an inclusive and flexible culture – one where everyone can realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to our organisation. This in turn helps us to provide better support to our broad client base.
Striving for gender balance
We’re passionate about achieving a better gender balance in our organisation and in the financial industry as a whole. That’s why we’ve pledged to help make our industry one where women want to work by signing the Women in Finance Charter. This means we’re committed to have women occupy 30% of the top four levels of our senior roles by 2020, up from 28% today.
We want to work together to ensure that we have an industry where women feel included and can contribute their best. By building a more balanced workforce, especially at more senior levels, we believe the industry will be able to unlock innovation and manage risk better.Find out more
Our employee resource groups Connecting employees
When we say we promote diversity and an inclusive culture, we mean it. That’s why we have more than 50 local employee resource groups. These networks connect and support colleagues, including those who are impacted by disability, have caregiver responsibilities, or are members or allies of the LGBT community.
