Women in Finance Charter – where do we go from here?
The average proportion of women has increased from 14% to 22% on executive committees across the UK finance sector, and from 23% to 32% on boards, since the charter was put in place. These are some positive numbers, and the charter should be celebrated for its achievements so far. However, there is clearly more that can be done.
I cover the wealth management and asset finance practices here at Fram Search, and I have seen an increase, albeit small, in the number of female applicants for roles that have historically been dominated by men. However, the issues that hinder male/female diversity are still there.
