Diversity & Inclusion

Difference adds value: whether it’s coming up with a different way of looking at the world or the willingness to call out when something doesn’t look right or fair.

Innovation and strong governance are key ingredients to the success of our business: that’s the real value of diversity. We don’t just get the same voices around the table. We value everyone’s point of view and are open to new perspectives. We encourage a disruptive mind-set, a positive one which helps us to be thought leaders rather than followers.

Women in Finance

We continue to push hard on gender diversity, ensuring our board and senior leadership teams are diverse and working hard to remove the barriers to women’s progression and reducing our gender pay gap.

We were one of the first signatories to the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, whose objectives, to increase the representation of women in Financial Services, are consistent with our own 50/50 by 2020 gender balance aspiration.

To meet our Charter commitments and move us towards our 50/50 by 2020 aspiration Legal & General set a target to increase the representation of women in middle to senior management roles from 35% as it was in July 2016 when the target was set,  to 40% by the end of 2020.  At the end of 2018 representation was at 36%.

To achieve this target we have developed actions plan in each of our business divisions which focus on how we attract, retain and develop diverse talent.

These actions are taking us towards our aspiration of 50/50 by 2020, and we have made progress with more women leaders at the top of our business and by hiring and promoting more women into senior roles, but we are not where we need to be yet, and we continue to press hard to make progress on our target.

As well as a focus on gender diversity we are also taking steps to ensure that the culture of our organisation is inclusive and that all our employees, whatever their background can thrive.

Our vision
