By broadening and deepening the talent pool, we’ll increase our diversity of thinking and create increased innovation. Better representing our diverse customer and member base enables us to better respond to their ever-changing needs. As we navigate the challenges and opportunities over the years ahead we recognise the need to nurture an environment where everyone feels that they can bring their true self to work and that our people’s views are recognised and respected in a truly inclusive business.

Our Diversity and Inclusion programme challenges us to provide inclusive products for our customers and members and to ensure our workplace is accessible and inclusive for all - from the culture we create, to the people processes we operate. As every aspect of diversity matters to us, we’ve engaged our people to inform our approach and we’ve made real progress.
