AIB Group (UK) p.l.c – Gender Diversity
Our Gender Balance Programme strives for better balance in pay, participation and promotions across our organisation, and for better business. While we in AIB UK have come a long way, with 41% of our female staff in senior management, we have more to do. We will be doing more on our Gender Balance Programme (from ‘Roots to Boardroom’) and are committed to achieving and sustaining balance at all our levels. All genders are key in our programme, as we seek to balance all activities across the organisation. We are guided by our firm belief that gender balanced organisations lead to better organisational outcomes with better investor value and returns.
In 2017 we signed up to the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter, which aims to build a more gender balanced workplace. We set a goal to achieve 50% female managers by the end of 2020. We have made a lot of progress, but didn’t reach our target due to a number of factors, not least the impact of Covid. As at 25th August 2021 we had reached 41% female representation in senior management. We remain committed to and focussed on accelerating the inclusion and diversity agenda with a suite of measures and initiatives in place to ensure gender balance.
