The Women in Finance Charter is a pledge for gender balance across financial services and is part of Together’s overall Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategy. Together is proud to be a signatory of the Charter.

Kevin Fisher, Chief People Officer, is the senior executive accountable for gender diversity at Together.

Our focus on Women in Finance is one strand out of four which sit within our overall DEI strategy that was launched to the business in December 2021.

Our key focuses are around women in leadership, disability, underrepresented ethnic groups and 50 plus, as well as our Togetherness groups which work alongside and support our DEI strands. As part of our commitment we nominated passionate and dedicated colleagues from the business as leads for each of the strands.

When we signed up to the Charter on 24th September 2021 we had 26% female representation in senior management, and at last year’s submission on 13th September 2022 we had 31%. As of 21st September 2023 we have 29% female representation in senior management, as a result of our leadership population expanding over the year.

While we have made some progress from our initial starting point, we have a lot of work to do to reach our target of 50% by 2026, so we have a created a clear action plan as a key part of our business strategy to drive us towards achieving this.
