Who gets ahead?

Taskforce to boost socio-economic diversity at senior levels in UK Financial and Professional services.

HM Treasury and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy have commissioned the City of London Corporation to lead an independent taskforce to boost socio-economic diversity in UK financial and professional services.

The taskforce is the first of its kind. The vision is for equity of progression - where high performance is valued over ‘fit’ and ‘polish’.

There will be three workstreams, supported by three delivery partners: Deloitte,  Connectr and PwC:

  • Industry consultation and roadmap on how government, regulators and sector bodies can incentivise employer action.
  • Membership body/peer network for financial services, focusing specifically on progression, a safe space to share best practice / benchmark against sector peers.
  • A productivity analysis, to build the business case for socio-economic diversity at senior levels.

To share information about the taskforce and its aims, please forward the brochure below to relevant contacts.
