Hinckley & Rugby Building Society is delighted to be a signatory to the Women in Finance Charter, a government initiative designed to improve gender diversity in senior positions within the financial services sector.
The Society has, for several years, maintained a gender balance across all levels of leadership within the organisation, including at Board level (Executive and Non–Executive Directors) and Senior Leadership level.
This has been achieved whilst pursuing 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.
At 30 September 2019, 8 females held positions at Board and Senior Leadership level out of a total of 16, i.e. 50%.

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 senior leadership population. We will monitor and report our progress against this on this website page.
