Gender and Beyond: Meeting the Diversity Challenge in Financial Services

 

The Finance Foundation is delighted to announce our next thought leadership event, supported by AIG Europe Ltd.

 

Tuesday 31st October, 2017

 

6pm – 8pm

 

Is Diversity important to instilling the cultural change that many are looking to see in the post crisis finance industry? Are Boards and senior executives taking the right action to tackle barriers to gender, race and LGBT equality? Larger businesses will soon have to publish gender pay gap data (at 34% financial services has the biggest gap of any sector). The Parker Review called for action to address the low representation of Black and Minority Ethnic staff at senior levels and the Women in Finance Charter asks for commitments to increase female senior presence. But is the sector just paying lip service to diversity objectives, or is real progress being made in identifying what needs to be done to support fair and equal representation and reward regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation/identity?

We have convened a panel of senior staff from the sector with direct experience of these issues to lead this discussion. We will be welcoming Tangy Morgan, Senior Advisor to the Prudential Regulation Authority and Strategia Worldwide Ltd, AIG’s Geoff Godwin, UK Chief Operating Officer and Chair of their LGBT Group, Jaclyn Dove, Executive Director, Insurance Europe at Standard Chartered Bank and Justine Lutterodt, Director of the Centre for Synchronous Leadership.

This will be followed by a moderated Q&A, chaired by our senior associate Patricia Hamzahee, Founder of Integriti Capital, a Responsible Investment consultant and former global investment banking executive.

 

This event will be hosted in the grand Elizabethan style library at One Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London SW1H 9JJ.

 

Registration is from 6pm and the event will begin promptly at 6.30pm, with drinks served after the formal proceedings and the evening ending at approximately 8pm. Please click here for directions.
