Call for new charter
08 March 2019
The time is right for a national ‘Women in Business Charter’, says the AAT.
The Women in Finance Charter was launched way back in 2016 and some 300 financial services firms, including the AAT, have signed up.
The charter asks for a commitment to implement four industry actions:
*To have a named senior executive responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion.
*To set internal targets for gender diversity in senior management positions.
*To publish progress annual.
*Ensure the pay of senior executives is linked to delivery against internal targets on gender diversity.
AAT head of Policy and public affairs, Phil Hall, said: “AAT was the first, and for a long time the only, professional accountancy body to sign the Women in Finance Charter, because it knows closing the gap leads to a more diverse and creative workforce, broadens the skills base and can increase creativity and innovation – to say nothing of the obvious issue of fairness and the financial imperative for change.”
