Inclusion and diversity
Our commitment to building an inclusive society that leaves no-one behind.
Inclusion is at the heart of our mutual purpose
We refer to this as ‘building society, nationwide’. Central to this is our mission to build a truly inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. And for our Society to reflect the diversity of the wider communities we serve.

Our Employee Network Groups
It’s vitally important that our people get the support they need. And equally important that our Society appreciates and understands their diverse needs.
Our 9 employee networks, that support inclusion and diversity, play a crucial role in doing this. They provide a space for people to share what's important to them, connect with others and be involved in action to make our Society more inclusive.
It’s through this dialogue that we can improve how we work and build an inclusive culture.
