Diversity & Culture
Ongoing issues of diversity and progression, gender pay, representation at senior levels in banking and financial services will be debated during FINSIA’s webinar on Diversity, Progression and Women in Leadership.
Unconscious bias is a leading issue that needs tackling, supported by diversity and inclusion training for all staff and leadership action to promote an inclusive image of the sector and do more to recruit from under-represented groups.
Career progression, negotiation and transparency, talent development and retention are
barriers that women and people from ethnic minority groups see as impeding progression in their own organisation.
Webinar will cover:
Summary of key highlights from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency's (WGEA) national dataset, as well as a snapshot of key data points for the Financial and Insurance Services division.
Highlights from the research report on ‘Women in leadership’ (by McKinsey & Company, WGEA and BCA) and the WGEA Guide on gender equitable recruitment and promotion.
