Progressive Building Society has signed the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter which has a key priority of harnessing the talents of women in financial services.
It marks the sector’s collaborative efforts to drive meaningful and permanent changes in the representation of women in financial services, to ensure women everywhere are able to fulfil their potential. In signing the Charter, the Society has made the following pledges to improve gender diversity.
The Society will set internal targets for gender diversity in senior management.
When we signed up to the Charter in 2016, we had 38% female representation at senior management level. As of 30 September 2022, we have 63% female representation in senior management. We are pleased to report that we have met this element of our Charter target.
When we signed up to the Charter in 2016, we had 74% female representation at management level which fell to 63% in 2021. We have however focussed on providing management development opportunities in 2022 which has resulted in the number of female managers returning to similar levels with a 73% representation.
We plan to continue with our focus on female hiring, development and maternity returners in the coming years.
