The Women in Finance Charter: a pledge for gender balance across financial services
Goji are proud to be working with HM Treasury and other signatory firms to build a more balanced and fair financial services industry. We know that more women joining the industry, and being involved at a senior level, is a very good thing. A more balanced workforce, whether that is diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, background, culture, thought or religion, is good for business: good for customers, for profitability and workplace culture, for colleagues and employees, and investors.
By signing the Charter, Goji are committing to:
• having one member of a senior executive team who is responsible and accountable for diversity and inclusion
• setting internal targets for diversity across the company and specifically in their senior management
• publishing progress annually against these targets in reports on our website
• having an intention to ensure the pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against these internal targets on gender diversity.
How are Goji doing so far?
Currently, 22% of our senior management are women. We know that’s not good enough and we’re pledging to increase that to 30% by 2020. So far, the Board of Goji have appointed Elizabeth McCallum, Head of Marketing, to be responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion. We’ve also linked a percentage of our Directors’ basic salary to performance against this target. We’ll keep this page updated with our progress every year, and hopefully more often than that if we have something interesting to tell you about.
