Diversity & Inclusion

The most important component in any business is the people who work there and we believe that our success is derived from the collective experiences, talents, perspectives, cultures and unique attributes of those people. We recognise that all employees must be treated fairly and have equal access to opportunities and work hard to create a culture that is inclusive and reflective of our vision and values.

Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) continues to be an important focus for Foresight. Introducing programmes such as unconscious bias training and signing up to the Women in Finance Charter enables us to ensure D&I is a top priority. We have established a D&I committee which takes steps to ensure we operate a truly diverse business.

Women in Finance Charter

Foresight is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace and aims to shine a light on female entrepreneurs, creating space for female leadership. In 2018 we became a signatory of HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter and pledged our support for gender balance across financial services.

Foresight pledges to promote gender diversity by:

  • Having a member of the senior executive team responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion;
  • Setting internal targets for gender diversity among our senior management;
  • Publishing progress annually against these targets in a report on our website; and
  • Having an intention to link the pay of the senior executive team to the delivery of internal targets on gender diversity

Set in 2019, our five-year target percentage for women in senior roles* at Foresight is 30%.

Actual 2019Actual 2020Target 2024

As at 30 September 2020, 35% of Foresight’s employees are female.

**Senior management roles are defined as ‘senior manager’ and above. The reported percentages are calculated in September each year following our annual promotion cycle.
