About us Diversity and inclusion

Disrupting diversity

Embracing and celebrating our diversity

Building an inclusive culture is vital to our future. We value and celebrate the diversity of our teams across all our locations and business functions so that everyone feels respected and can realise their full potential.

That’s why we have three dedicated global employee networks - 

  1. Global Women's Network
  2. Global LGBT and Allies Network
  3. Global Disability Network

– as well as more than 60 local Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). 

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. 

We strive to offer a safe, supportive and empowering environment for all our staff, and to be a positive employer for anyone affected by disability.

Swimming against the tide

I grew up in a remote village in India, where knowledge of the polio vaccination was limited. I was affected by polio at seven months old: a massive attack that left me paralysed below the shoulders.

How can we be disability inclusive?

As a Deaf person, I know and have experienced the common misconceptions about Deaf people. The problem is that most people have never worked with a Deaf colleague, and so their misconceptions are perpetuated.

Volunteering in the community

One of the reasons why I’ve stayed with the bank for ten years is that I’m a huge believer of giving back to society and our bank offers a great platform for this
