The NACFB has become the first trade body in the commercial finance sector to sign up to the Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter.
The Treasury announced the NACFB’s inclusion as part of a tranche of a further 67 companies who have signed up to the Charter, which aims to tackle gender inequality in senior roles.
The NACFB is proud to stand alongside our Patrons, many of whom have already signed up as we join over 270 signatories to the Charter, which now covers over 760,000 financial services employees in the UK.
The Women in Finance Charter asks firms to commit to four industry actions to prepare their female talent for leadership positions.
These include setting internal targets for gender diversity in senior management roles and publishing our progress annually against these targets in reports on the NACFB website.
NACFB CEO Graham Toy said of the announcement “We are delighted to have joined more than 270 companies who have committed to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter.”
Adding “Gender equality and diversity is integral to creating a fairer, more prosperous society. Whilst there’s still some way to go across the wider sector, we are proud to be part of a modern trade Association that is taking steps to be part of the solution.”
