Women in Finance Charter

Diversity and inclusion matter at Hinckley & Rugby Building Society and we are proud to be a signatory of 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 Executive Committee 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 2020, 9 females held positions at Board and Executive Committee level out of a total of 17, i.e. 53%.  We believe we have met our Charter target.  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 & Executive Committee population. We will monitor and report our progress against this on this website page.
