The initiative celebrates its first birthday today (22 March), and the Commercial Secretary, Baroness Neville-Rolfe, said:
“We have made a strong start – the first anniversary of the Women in Finance Charter sees 122 firms seizing the competitive advantage by tackling sex inequality head on.”
Sarah Tebbutt, People & Strategy Director at NS&I, added:
“We’re proud to join this Charter and to support the development of women in the financial sector, from junior roles through to senior leadership.
A diverse and flexible work force is essential for productivity and to delivering fair and inclusive services for our customers.
We look forward to working alongside our partners in the public sector and in financial services to championing greater equality and to enabling success for men and women throughout our business and beyond.
With our excellent working culture and flexible people policies, NS&I is celebrating achieving 50:50 gender balance in our leadership and senior management team.”
