Women in Finance Charter – Annual Update 2018
When we signed up to the Charter in May 2017, we had 28% female representation in senior leadership, as of September 2018, this was 29%. We recognise that we have some way to go to achieve our stretching 50/50 target and we remain passionate, focused and committed to reaching our target.
Nutmeg is at the intersection of two industries which have not historically attracted a good gender balance – financial services and the tech sector – which makes it even more challenging to achieve an equal gender split, particularly at more senior levels of the organisation.
We have a range of initiatives in place to ensure:
- we attract a balance of candidates when we advertise new roles
- minimise the possibility of unconscious bias in our recruitment processes
- nurture and develop talent from within
- our CEO, Martin Stead, asks for a balanced shortlist when recruiting for all roles. He is also on the CMI Women board and is an EMpower mentor
