Evidence tells us that more diverse management teams lead not only to better results for customers, but also to the development of products and services that reflect our wider society.
We recognise that disengagement with pension savings is caused by a lack of diversity across the industry. PensionBee strives to change that. Not only do we seek to make our company more diverse, but we also seek to make pensions more accessible to a broader range of people. PensionBee is publicly committed to developing, nurturing and celebrating senior-level female talent, and helping create a more inclusive industry.
We commit to ensuring that by 2020 women will continue to make up 50% of our senior team and passionately support companies that seek to do the same.
As a female Chief Executive, I am extremely proud to commit our organisation to promoting gender equality in the UK
Romi Savova, Founder and CEO of PensionBee, is our nominated member of the senior executive team responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion.
“As a female Chief Executive, I am extremely proud to commit our organisation to promoting gender equality in the UK. For far too long, pension products and services have not been representative of our diverse society. Excluding women from financial services is a social and economic failure that every organisation should strive to change!”
PensionBee is signing the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter and pledging to promote gender diversity by:
- having one member of our senior executive team who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion;
- setting internal targets for gender diversity in our senior management;
- publishing progress annually against these targets in reports on our website; and
- having an intention to ensure the pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against these internal targets on gender diversity.
