Gender Diversity

In our new SRI Expert Briefing, we take an in depth look at the issue of gender diversity. In our view, companies that are genuinely alive to the business advantages of encouraging and empowering diversity will be the better performers over the long-term. Companies failing to recruit and promote from a diverse talent pool are missing out on the skills and expertise of 50% of the population. 

What does the briefing cover?

The Expert Briefing looks at a number of different aspects to the gender diversity issue as a whole, ranging from  how diverse UK boards are and how progress has been encouraged. We then outline why gender diversity is important to us, and as such, how we have integrated the issue into our engagement strategy and voting policy with companies. To find out more, you can download the full SRI Expert Briefing.
