Women in Finance Charter

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.

At 30 September 2018, 9 females held positions at Board and Senior Leadership level out of a total of 18, i.e. 50%.  This is a far greater proportion than many of the institutions that have signed up to the Women in Finance Charter.

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.
