We have four established employee networks:
- GLEE (our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender network) plays a pivotal role in providing mentoring support to its members, as well as reviewing our employee policies to ensure they are delivering for everyone.
- The Women’s Innovation Network (UK WIN) is our largest network with over 300 members in the UK and 5,000 globally. WIN’s mission is to create equal career development opportunities for both women and men, and to create tangible business value by improving gender diversity amongst our senior managers. WIN runs a number of events each year including Speed Mentoring, Personal Impact workshops and up-skilling webinars.
- Our Disability Inclusion Group (DIG) is committed to improving products and services for our customers in addition to shaping our recruitment and retention processes so they fully support our employees with disabilities. The group is open to all employees and includes both disabled and non-disabled employees.
- The UK population is becoming more diverse and it’s important that we reflect this. Our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Group is committed to increasing our ethnic diversity through a strong focus on recruitment and retention, so we can better understand the needs of our customers and ultimately deliver more innovative and diverse services.
As well as our networks, we have a range of initiatives that we are working on across the UK and globally, to ensure our workplace is inclusive for all of our employees and our customers, including unconscious bias training and recruitment initiatives.
In addition to this, we use our Diversity & Inclusion policy to shape and implement all our policies, practices and procedures, so that no-one is disadvantaged or excluded.
