Diversity and Inclusion at Standard Chartered
With our employees comprising 125 different nationalities, Diversity and Inclusion is an intrinsic and distinctive element of our brand, at the heart of our values.
Our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion is simple – we want to get the best out of the broadest spectrum of people in order to sustain strong business performance and competitive advantage. We believe that managing diversity through inclusion will enable us to understand and serve all our stakeholders better and make us the preferred employer in our markets.
Our initial focus will be on gender, nationality and visual impairment. We will strive to be recognised as a leader in gender diversity by helping women realise their full potential through personal development and supportive workplace practices implemented in an engaging and inclusive workplace. We will develop and implement approaches to achieve our Diversity and Inclusion aspiration, track and report progress over time, whilst observing local legislation in all our markets.
