Our commitment to equality and diversity

We want to be equal, diverse and inclusive

We put equality, diversity and inclusion at the heart of our business, aiming to give all our customers and colleagues an equal experience, regardless of cultural background, age, class, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, faith, language or health.

We champion equality, diversity and inclusion by:

  • 1.

    Ensuring that equality and diversity is a natural part of what we do and think.

  • 2.

    Meeting our statutory requirements and going beyond this as much as possible, by taking positive action and building a culture for customers and colleagues that champions equality and diversity.

  • 3.

    Promoting a culture where we value and celebrate diversity amongst colleagues and customers.

  • 4.

    Maintaining fair representation where we are doing well and improving representation in areas where we could improve.
