Our Employee Led Networks
We support a variety of employee organised and led groups - known as 'Employee Led Networks'. Our networks are sponsored by members of our Executive Committee and are made up of volunteer colleagues who play a key role in delivering, raising awareness of, and influencing our bank-wide inclusion strategy.
“I am so proud to sponsor and stand with our Employee Led Networks, to build a truly inclusive culture across our bank. The Networks bring fantastic insight, experience and challenge to the table – which is of great value to me and my Executive Team. They are a real source of encouragement and energy, and it’s clear to see their positive impact on our organisation.”
Alison Rose, CEO and Employee Led Networks Sponsor
We’re extremely proud of our eight Employee Led Networks. Find out more about each of them:
