“The ongoing gap is an area Fidelity has given a lot of attention to, and it’s a personal focus of mine, too. Here, in my view, are some things stakeholders can ascribe to so they can provide women with the training, confidence and opportunity to shine in financial services.”

  • Open-mindedness. Hiring in a broad sense has a lot of parameters to consider. Those who sit on hiring new employees onboard should think much more as to who they may consider as candidates for financial services positions.
  • Misjudging the candidates based on the workforce currently; you’ll never become more diverse with that old-school thinking. It is truly essential to understand customers, their needs and preferences, and examine employee demographics.
  • Take some risks with smart, capable people who may not already have a financial background; they can learn! By doing so, directly we’re recruiting, hiring, advancement and training practices will evolve accordingly.

Caroline Tsai, EVP of Western Union

Caroline Tsai

In her own words,

Women at the C-Suite level need to mentor and sponsor women in their companies. In 2015, our CEO, Hikmet Ersek, created an all-female senior advisory group with the mandate to create an action plan to promote women’s success at Western Union. It was done through, recruiting, mentoring, promoting and measuring progress.

An opportunity to look more deeply at our gender numbers, as we rate as better than average. We are aiming to be high-performing in terms of gender equality at the highest levels of our company, that target is 40 per cent.

Through research, we found that often the root cause is not in hiring or retaining women, but rather in promoting women into new and expanded roles. The challenges dictate a host of.

One example, being a woman and not putting up their hands for challenging roles despite the nominations are being considered for promotions. To that end, I would urge individuals such as women themselves to actively stretch assignments and seize the opportunities.

In her own words,

Awareness. Those who have privilege don’t always see it. It’s about becoming more aware of privileges around us.  That what we take for granted can be a barrier for others. Despite some senior leaders claiming we have reached a meritocracy, there is still progress to be made when you look at those ratios and how far along, we are from reaching true gender parity.

In her own words, 

Acknowledging and addressing is the first step to pull down gender bias problem. While companies are paying more attention to diversity, gender bias remains prevalent. It’s subtle and often unintentional, such as male and female managers being perceived differently when behaving the same way.

Establish better on-ramps for women who have taken time off to be caregivers. It is quite important to understand that the parity doesn’t always remain the same. Every individual is different.

Mentor. I feel a great responsibility to support women as they navigate their careers. I’ve often found my own contemporaries to be quite ruthless in their treatment of other women. ⁠To be honest, likely qualities that were required to succeed in tough environments. It inspired me to do the opposite.

In her own words,

Owning work, demonstrate commitment through actions (not just words) to ensure that we are attracting and hiring a diverse workforce. As well as, promoting and supporting the very best among them to leadership positions.

Be open to hiring outside of our traditional “pool of candidates.” Far too often, managers think they have to only hire people within the industry. The most precious candidates are just outside of the comfort list.

Holding conversations with children helps them learn anything and everything.  This attitude will help them reach for the stars.

Progress is taking place slowly but certainly room to grow. Diversity engenders better decision-making and a healthier company.

Our success in this area will depend on how well we support and nurture diverse and inclusive teams, networks and language within the company.

The hard reality is that the potential for bias exists within everyone. The trick is to know how to keep it in check and to always be aware of its presence in our circles and minds.

When we’re recruiting, it’s essential to ensure that we are recruiting a diverse bunch. So, we don’t end up just hiring people who look and sound like us.

Josephine Moran, EVP of Provident Bank 

Josephine Moran - Successful Women

In her own words,

Diversity must be part of a company’s strategic plan. It begins with that. The attitude and influence begin with the executive leadership team.

Everyone at that level must buy in the fact and understand why this is important. Better yet, be ready to execute within this realm.

Define programs to promote diversity including leadership development programs and mentoring programs.  Most importantly, women’s councils within the organization matters. Women’s council that supports and fosters the growth of women.

Women in senior positions must be role models for women in the organization. If they’re available for coaching, mentoring and “sharing” their career story, it is all the more supportive.

Find all the women as the true source of inspiration to not just combat sexism but to combat whatever the challenges. All the very best!
