  • Firms in the finance sector are starting to commit to 50/50 gender split targets publically.

Over 140 firms have already signed the HM Treasury’s 10-point charter to boost gender equality in the financial sector. They pledge to be the best in the financial sector and work together to build a more balanced and fair finance industry.

The HMT Women in Finance Charter will drive permanent sustainable change on gender issues across the financial services industry.

According to the think tank New Financial, 62% of firms who signed up to the Charter have taken specific action to support female career progression including succession planning, examining hiring practices and unconscious bias training. Over a quarter of the signatory firms who have published their diversity targets are committed to a 50/50 gender split in senior roles, and have set a date to achieve that target.
