Capco, the global management and technology consultancy, is a signatory to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, which commits HM Treasury and signatory firms to work together to achieve gender balance, at all levels, across financial services in the UK.
In signing the Charter, Capco’s UK practice has pledged to promote gender diversity through the following measures:
Mike Ethelston, UK Managing Partner, said: “At Capco, we strongly believe that diversity and inclusion in the workplace drives innovation and business performance. We are committed to a workplace where all employees feel valued, have opportunity to advance their career and are encouraged to be their authentic selves regardless of gender. These principles are at the very heart of our Be Yourself at Work (#BYAW) culture.
“As part of our commitment to meeting the goal outlined in the Women in Finance Charter, Capco has set a number of initiatives in motion. These include a review of recruitment, retention and learning and development processes; a plan to ensure that recruitment candidate pools are more balanced; the creation of specific mentoring programs for underrepresented employees; and the enhancement of existing unconscious bias and other diversity and inclusion training for employees.”
