Diversity and inclusion matter at Hinckley & Rugby Building Society and we have been proud signatories of the Women in Finance Charter since 2018.
The Women in Finance Charter is a government initiative designed to improve gender diversity in senior positions within the financial services sector.
We’re delighted to say that the Society has maintained a gender balance across all levels of leadership within the organisation for several years, including at Board level (Executive and Non–Executive Directors) and Executive Committee level.
This has been achieved while adopting a strategy of appointing the right individuals for roles, regardless of gender.
When we signed up to the Charter in September 2018, we had 50% female representation.
As of 30 September 2021, eight females held positions at Board and Executive Committee level out of a total of 15 (53%). We believe we have met our Charter target, and, over the coming year, we expect to maintain this position.

As part of our commitment to the Women in Finance Charter, and in the context of our strong position in terms of gender balance, we have set a floor for gender diversity across our Board and Executive Committee. We will monitor and report our progress on this page.
