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

The combined efforts have contributed to some progress, albeit we recognise we have further to go, particularly at senior management level, where female and ethnic minority representation as at February 2021 is 32% and 8% respectively. Below senior management level we have representation at 46% and 21%, with greater diversity levels among new joiners, as at February 2021, 41% of experienced hires were female and 31% were from ethnic minority backgrounds. This representation is to be slightly higher for those joining our 2021 graduate scheme. We are also taking steps to further improve our own data collection with respect to diversity and inclusion, particularly in relation to other diversity characteristics. In the meantime, we have engaged with the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, rising 18 places to 160th in 2020, and ranking 32nd in the Social Mobility Employer Index, up from 41st in 2017
