At Foresight, inclusion and diversity is about recognising and valuing the differences we each bring to the workplace. It's one of the most important components of any business, and continues to be an important focus for us.
Our people have a diverse range of skills, backgrounds, and experiences and we value the creativity and innovation that results.
While conversations around inclusion and discrimination are being amplified on the global stage, it is our priority to empower staff and contribute to generating similar attitudes in respect of equality, diversity, social mobility, flexible working and inclusion in the workplace and the wider community. We believe in the importance of diversity to change a culture and sustain a business and are committed to a variety of initiatives that help to create change.

Women who lead
After 18 years in the financial services industry I’m acutely aware that, often, it’s a very challenging environment for female entrepreneurs and female professionals. What’s encouraging to me is the momentum behind conversations of gender equality and female empowerment in the workplace.
There are many talented women that we work with, both at Foresight and across our portfolio. Through our investments, we are proud to support fantastic female-founded businesses across the UK. When considering deals, we do look to address the female funding gap and shape the industry and I'm delighted to see this reflected in our portfolio and have this opportunity to enact change.
