Women in financial services: beyond the Gadhia Review
This latest event in our diversity breakfast series is to discuss implementing the recommendations of the Gadhia review into women in financial services, and what it means to be a Women in Finance charter signatory.
It will include discussion of the following themes:
Signing the charter
– How have the Gadhia recommendations been received in your company?
– Has the reception varied by seniority and business line?
– What does your company understand that the charter requires?
– Does your company intend to become a charter signatory?
Applying the principles of the charter
– Which parts of the charter have been or are proving to be the most challenging: setting targets, communicating those targets publicly, choosing an accountable executive, or linking diversity targets to variable pay?
– How is your company overcoming these challenges?
– Is there willing at board/exco level to work towards best practice of just the bare minimum in complying with the charter requirements?
The impact of the Gadhia report and charter
– Has the Gadhia report and the charter prompted discussions at the highest levels within your company?
– Has the report’s findings influenced your company’s strategic plan for diversity and how it is communicated externally/internally?
– Do you believe becoming a charter signatory will drive permanent sustainable change in your organisation and the industry as a whole?
