DP21/2: Diversity and inclusion in the financial sector – working together to drive change

We believe that a diversity and inclusion policy should be a central consideration for all firms, as it forms the foundation of a strategy and action plan. Clearly documented policies help set out expectations of all staff on what diversity and inclusion means within their organisation, and what their respective roles are in fostering an open and inclusive environment and empowering their colleagues to speak up and express their views. We want to explore a requirement for all firms to have a policy and to publish it on their website. This would both show commitment and allow stakeholders, including the regulators, investors, consumers and employees to hold firms to account (some firms are already required to this, see chapter 3)

Guidance for firms to be open about their policy. To keep it as a central consideration.
