Mortgages for Business signs up to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter
Mortgages for Business is among 67 new signatory companies to sign up to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter.
The charter reflects the government’s aspiration to see gender balance at all levels within firms operating in the financial services sector.
Jenny Barrett, director of marketing & research at Mortgages for Business, said: “According to the 2017 World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, although 46% of employees within financial services are women, only 15% are working at the executive level. Clearly this needs to change and I’m very excited to be leading the initiative here at Mortgages for Business.”
Steve Olejnik, COO at Mortgages for Business, said: “Within our firm, I can reveal that 25% of the board is made up of women. Whilst this might be a higher percentage than the average, in reality, that is just two women and we are mindful that over time the figure needs to rise. We are all committed to making it happen and ensure that we have a gender balance throughout the business.”
