Path and the Women in Finance Charter
As part of our commitment to the Women in Finance Charter, we have signed up to the following actions to promote gender diversity and inclusion:
- Having a senior management team member who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion
- Setting a target for female representation in our Senior Management team; (as well as aiming for fair female representation across all levels and areas in the business).
- Publishing progress annually against these targets
- Ensuring any senior management bonus scheme is linked to delivery against these internal targets on gender diversity
Our target is to achieve or exceed 40% female representation at Senior Management level by 2025.
In addition to our Senior Management target, we are aiming for 50% of our workforce across the business to be female as well as 50% of our management staff.
How are we doing?
Since signing up to the Charter we have already seen commitment to our pledged targets, with 50% of staff across the business being female (an increase of 2%), we have maintained the 43% of management positions being held by women and have made our first major step into achieving our longer term of goal of 40% female representation at senior management level with an increase to 25%.
Path is committed to a culture of inclusion and whilst our Women in Finance targets are an essential metric to understand performance and keep our ‘feet to the fire’, we also aim to instil good working practice through recruitment, training & career progression programmes and policies which support the development of female talent within the business.
2 keys elements are:
- Ensuring we support staff through flexible working and professional development.
- Ensuring we support female progression into senior roles, through training, supervision and mentoring.
We believe a diverse organisation results in more diverse views and is more representative of our clients, which will ultimately lead to more success in our shared goals.
