BSA comments on the Gadhia Review update

11 July 2016
Seventy-two financial services firms in the UK have signed up to a government Charter designed to improve gender diversity in senior positions in the financial services sector.

The Charter is based on recommendations made by Virgin Money chief executive, Jayne-Anne Gadhia. Gadhia led a review of women in senior executive positions within the financial services sector.

Hilary McVitty, Head of External Affairs at the BSA comments:
“Growing and recruiting a diversity of talent is important to our sector both for executive and non-executive roles.  For many societies gender diversity sits alongside other forms of employee diversity like disability, race, creed and sexual orientation.  

“A number of BSA members have signed up to this Charter, with others implementing the recommendations most appropriate to their businesses.  A number of societies already had a senior executive with specific responsible for employee diversity.”
