Inclusion and diversity

We stand for

Strength in diversity

We want to be an agile, people-centred business, where everyone is included, supported, and empowered to develop their talents to the full. We have simplified our structure so we can share capability, talent and best practice coupled with embedding diversity, collaboration, and innovation globally.

Our inclusion, diversity and social mobility goals

Our ambitions are bold as we drive to have a minimum 30% women in the business by 2030. To accelerate progress we have looked again at our strategic approach to inclusion and diversity and are taking a number of actions including: rolling out new policies and ways of working, refreshed recruitment processes, improved leadership development, enhanced mentoring programmes and career returners schemes along with training.

We have also launched our Gender balance Action Plan (GAP). This acts as the blueprint for Inclusion and Diversity, informed by data and insight, and is supported by our Senior Inclusion and Diversity Executive Committee Sponsor.
