Barclays remains focussed on improving gender diversity through a workplace environment and culture that supports and empowers women and men across the organisation to attract and retain women at all levels.

From hiring the UK’s first ever female bank manager in the 1950s to being the first financial services company to sign up to the UN’s HeForShe campaign in 2015, Barclays has often been at the forefront in championing women’s careers and engaging men in the conversation.

We want to achieve gender equality at every level of Barclays so that our female colleagues can fulfil their career aspirations. We know that we have more to do to continue accelerating the progression of women into more senior roles and we will continue to push our ambitions much further on gender diversity and gender parity.
