We are building an inclusive culture where everyone is valued for who they are and what they bring.
Our Diversity and Inclusion framework guides the action we are taking over 2021-22. The framework reflects our most important priority areas.
Targets help us ensure our actions are making a difference and drive transparency and accountability for progress.
We achieved our first gender targets for representation of women at Board and senior leadership in 2020 (both targets were 33%), and built on this progress with new targets from January 2021, including an ethnicity target for the first time.
Our targets for 2025 are:
|Position at 21 June 2021||2025 Target|
|Gender||PLC Board||45% women||40% women | 40% men | 20% any gender|
|Gender||Senior leadership||36% women||40% women | 40% men | 20% any gender
|Gender||Global workforce||46% women||50% women (+/-3%)|
|Ethnicity||PLC Board||9% ethnic minority||18% (or +1 director) ethnic minority|
We have structured our 2025 targets in this way for a number of reasons:
What we say has to be what we do. At abrdn we continue to set high standards for ourselves, and we expect others to do the same. We’ve made good progress, but there is more to do – and we’re focused on increasing momentum for everyone who counts on us to build better, more inclusive futures.
