E2W commits to Women in Finance Charter

E2W commits to Women in Finance Charter

Tina.Freed / 03 May 2016

E2W have signed the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter, a pledge for gender balance across financial services.

By signing the Charter, E2W have committed to implement four recommendations to improve gender diversity in financial services. The charter asks financial firms to support the progression of women into senior roles, set internal targets to improve diversity in the workforce, and publicly report on these goals.

E2W’s charter pledges are:

  • As the go to place for women to manage their financial services careers and for financial institutions wishing to claim the Gender Dividend our gender diversity challenges are different from most firms. By the nature of our business, each individual member of the E2W team are responsible and accountable for promoting gender diversity and inclusion to the industry and ensuring our members maximise career opportunities. We have set a target at board level to now consider how we encourage men into our membership and to promote and understand how their requirements can be addressed to build towards the long term goal of a gender neutral society.
  • Our internal diversity targets are to ensure that 75% of our senior management team remain female.
  • Our external targets are to
    • support 50 women into senior management/board level roles at the financial services clients we are working with
    • support 100 women who wish to continue their financial services careers to be retained in consulting, contracting and other permanent positons in the sector.
    • support 50 woman, who would have otherwise been lost to the industry, to continue or return to careers.
  • We will publish progress against these targets on this website
  • Bonus payments are tied to achieving both the internal and external diversity targets

“As the go to place for women to manage their financial services careers and for financial institutions wishing to claim the Gender Dividend, E2W are delighted to support the charter and to have helped HM Treasury to launch it. Increasing the representation of women in all stages of their careers is at the heart of the E2W business model and the Charter. There are many compelling reasons for addressing these issues and supporting women in their financial services careers:- it’s good for the economy, it’s good for society, it’s good for business outcomes, but most of all it’s the right thing to do. We are proud of our track record of enabling financial institutions to foster gender diversity across their business and we are proud to enable talented women to secure challenging roles in the sector.” Tina Freed, Co-Founder

WIFC update 30 August 2017

We set a target at board level to consider how we encourage men into our membership, and to promote and understand how their requirements can be addressed to build towards the long-term goal of a gender-neutral society. Little or no progress has been made against this target.    

Our internal diversity targets were to ensure that 75% of our senior management team remain female. This target has been met.  

Our external targets have been met. E2W are now supporting in excess of 200 women in the sector through our membership programme.


E2W Board are considering goals and targets for 2017/8 and they will be published here shortly.
