Gender and Ethnicity Pay Gap Report

Gender Pay Gap - 767 x 431px - Small Banner Image

Read our Gender and Ethnicity Pay Gap Reports.

This is our fourth year of gender pay gap reporting and the first time we have voluntarily included details of our ethnicity pay gap.

Whilst the gender pay data currently relates to UK only, (England & Scotland only regarding ethnicity pay data) we continue to implement a global Diversity & Inclusion strategy and are clear about our resolve to embed inclusive leadership at every level within our business.

It is important to acknowledge that across the DWF Group, we know we are not where we need to be in terms of female and BAME (Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic) representation at senior levels. We recognise that reducing our gender and ethnicity pay gap requires a sustained effort at every level of our business, and at every point in the employee life cycle, from attraction and recruitment through to development, succession planning and promotion.

Gender Pay Gap Report 2019

We published our 2019 Gender Pay Gap Report in accordance with the guidelines set out in The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

Whilst we are working hard to speed up the pace of change in our business, there is a gender pay gap due to the fact that we have more men at senior levels in higher paid roles. We are taking targeted and sustained action where there is currently under-representation and we are making positive progress. We know that changing decades of imbalance in our business and sector is going to take time, but we are committed to addressing it.

Our latest action plan set out our immediate priorities. This sustained focus on meaningful actions will result in a more diverse workforce supported and empowered through our inclusive culture and values.
