Women in Finance Charter

We signed up to the Women in Finance Charter in January 2018, and at that time, we had 18% female senior management representation.

We signed up to the Women in Finance Charter in January 2018, and at that time, we had 18% female senior management representation. As of September 2020 we had 23% female representation in senior management which rose to 25% by December 2020.  This increased to 32% by end of 2021 and as at September 2022 we reported 37% female representation in senior management which has decreased to 35% in September 2023.  This decrease is due to a number of structural changes which have happened in the past 12 months, coupled with natural attrition where reasons for leaving are varied.
We continue to be committed to creating a work culture where senior females can progress within Brown Shipley

Our female representation on our executive committee has risen from 12% (2019) to 29% (2020) and since September 2022 when it was 38%, it has now risen to 40%. 

Our female representation at Board level remains for a third year at 29%.

We have made positive progress and recognise that this needs to be sustained and embedded across our population with a continued focus on ensuring that at all stages of employee life cycle there is a policy of gender neutrality and that there is gender balance in recruitment shortlists.

Our work with Wealthiher and our continued partnership with LGBT Great demonstrates our commitment to broader diversity as part of our Culture strategy.   

We recognise that we are on a journey and have more to do with delivering against our diversity and inclusion strategy remaining a key priority for us.  Although we have not reached our December 2023 target of 40% we continue to actively work towards this.

The Brown Shipley Executive team are committed to continuing to build a diverse and inclusive culture where all employees are equally included and where all employees are celebrated for their diversity.
