Masthaven signs Women in Finance Charter

Masthaven Bank has signed up to the Women in Finance Charter.

The Charter asks financial services firms to work together to create a gender balance at all levels by pledging to implement four key industry actions, including setting internal targets for gender diversity in senior management and publishing progress annually against these targets.

In recent years, Masthaven has launched a number of initiatives to champion gender diversity, including its ‘Women in Leadership’ and ‘Emerging Leaders’ programmes, delivered with WDI Consulting to support women in senior and managerial positions at the bank with resources for their career development.

According to the bank, women comprise 47% of its staff, holding 34% of all senior management positions and making up 33% of the bank’s board.

Tricia Halpin, chief people officer at Masthaven (pictured above), said: “The Women in Finance Charter enshrines the values that Masthaven lives by. 

“As an organisation, we understand the need to prioritise diversity and inclusion, which is why we’ve invested in our people. 

“The bank has launched initiatives to support women in their career development and ensure everyone shares in the company’s success.
“Diversity of all kinds is well known to benefit businesses; diverse viewpoints spark innovation, and a wide range of perspectives means we can better support our customers from all walks of life. 

“Diversity and inclusion need to be at the top of the agenda for every organisation and we’re proud to be signing the Women in Finance Charter as we commit to encouraging female talent across the business.”
