Diversity and Progression Report 2019

  • 16 October 2019

The results of our latest Diversity and Progression Report, conducted in partnership with The Finance Foundation, have revealed that for men and women working in financial services, there are clear opportunities for progression, according to 70% of respondents.

But for ethnic minorities, only half agreed that they had a good access to progression in the industry, with over 40% identifying unconscious bias as the leading issue that needs tackling, supported by diversity and inclusion training for all staff.

As well as career progression, the survey captured the views of Institute members on pay negotiation and transparency, gender and ethnicity, with similarly striking results.
