Lloyds Banking Group has committed to becoming a leader in gender diversity. We recognise that companies with proportionate gender diversity see increased performance, and make better decisions.
Our commitment to gender diversity is led from the top with our Executive Sponsor for Gender, Stephen Shelley, championing this important initiative.
In 2014 we made a bold public commitment on gender equality in our Helping Britain Prosper plan; to increase the proportion of senior management roles held by women to 40% by 2020. Our goal has seen us advance from 28% in 2014 to 37% in that time.
We recognise there is still more to do and will continue to take the necessary action to ensure we have a diverse senior manager population that accurately represents our diverse customer base.
We have set new aspirations for a leadership team that reflects the society we serve, of 50 per cent women in senior roles by 2025.
At the end of 2021, 38% of senior management roles were held by women.
A blueprint for gender equality
Fiona Cannon, Group Director for Sustainable Business reflects on the progress we've made in relation to gender inclusion.

With 15,000 members and 4,000 mentors, and is one of the many ways we are supporting colleagues with fulfilling their career potential at Lloyds Banking Group.
