Nationwide stays in top ten for gender and race equality

NATIONWIDE Building Society has been ranked in the top ten private sector organisations for gender and race equality for the third year in a row.

The top 10 lists, published by Opportunity Now and Race for Opportunity – the gender and race campaigns from Business in the Community (BITC) – also show how Britain’s biggest building society, with its headquarters in Swindon, was rated Platinum for its gender diversity work and Gold for race diversity.

The top 10, which is not in a ranked order, is published in the results of the UK’s most comprehensive Gender and Race Benchmark.

A total of 114 public and private sector organisations submitted workforce data on gender and race, and were assessed on career progression, recruitment, supplier diversity, and senior management and board representation of women and ethnic minorities.

Tony Prestedge, Nationwide's chief operating officer and executive sponsor for gender diversity, said: “Receiving Platinum status for the second year running shows we are continuing to make sure women and men are given equal opportunities to thrive at work.

"Being recognised for this hard work makes us even more determined to progress female talent further through training, mentoring and support and increase the number of women at senior levels.”
