Financial Services – senior jobs are still mostly for the boys

Industry News | 25/10/19

Businesses have faced ever greater scrutiny and criticism over gender diversity – with few industries more in the spotlight than financial services. But despite bold targets and high-profile initiatives, there have been only pockets of progress; senior levels of finance are nearly as male today as they were 15 years ago.

The last few years have seen a major focus on gender diversity in financial services, with concerns that male dominated firms are inherently more risk-taking and that firms need to represent the society of consumers they serve. But despite the scrutiny and public commitments to evolve, financial services have seen little if any improvement in gender diversity.
