Direct Line Group signs up to the Women in Finance Charter

Direct Line Group is delighted to announce that it has signed up to the Women in Finance Charter.

The Charter is a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to work together to build a more balanced and fair industry. It reflects the Government’s, as well as our aspiration, to see gender balance at all levels across financial services firms.

Our pledge to the Charter is a welcomed addition to the other initiatives already happening across the business. This gives us another opportunity to support and promote diversity and inclusion within our organisation and keeps us well positioned as the insurer that can protect an ever-changing Britain.

Paul Geddes, CEO, Direct Line Group, commented:

“Direct Line Group is a firm believer that having a diverse organisation is intrinsically linked to greater productivity and performance, increased innovation as well as better customer understanding. However, we also recognise that further engagement and action is needed across financial services if we are truly going to change the status quo.

“The Women Finance Charter is a great mechanism to move diversity and inclusion up the boardroom agenda and we are very proud to be working alongside Government and the wider sector to drive this initiative forward."
