Companies Withhold Diversity Data From Investors

A recent report from University of Exeter Business School for the UK’s FRC found that just 15% of companies complied with the UK Corporate Governance Code on diversity reporting, with just over three months to go until the new code takes effect on 1 January 2019.

Sturgeon Ventures, whose core working model has been agile working since 1998, is one of the original signatories to The Women in Finance Charter.

The first commitment of this Charter is to ask firms to support the progression of women into senior roles in the financial services sector by focusing on the executive pipeline and the mid-tier level with internal target setting.  This can only be benefited by providing an agile working environment to encourage women back to the workplace and the Finance industry at large.

Agile working and diversity

Sturgeon Ventures continues to build a talent pool with a strong work–life balance; a wonderful work place for an expanding team of back to work mothers, and uniquely fathers, who care about that word in a working man’s life “Work-Life Balance”.
