Treasury Select Committee chair Nicky Morgan is calling on 33 financial services firms including Goldman Sachs, UBS and JP Morgan to sign the Women in Finance Charter.
Nicky has written to 33 financial services firms who have yet to sign up and asked them to confirm to the committee by Friday if they plan to join the initiative or explain why they have decided not to do so.
The charter, which was published by the Treasury and E2W helped to launch, commits firms to promoting women to senior positions, to be transparent about achieving diversity targets, and to have at least one executive in charge of diversity.
"The progress of the Women in Finance Charter is to be welcomed. The aim, however, must be to see all firms in the financial sector sign up to the charter and make a concerted effort to improve their gender diversity, particularly in senior roles," Mrs Morgan said in a letter.
"Huge multinationals including Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and UBS are yet to sign up to the charter, and if they don't intend to do so, the Treasury committee wants them to explain why."
E2W are delighted to be working with firms like Deutsche, Barclays, Legal & General, Janus Henderson, Morgan Stanley who have signed the charter and are committed to receiving the benefits of improved gender diversity.
