Sexism in the City - Not much has changed

The much anticipated Sexism in the City Report has just been released after the House of Commons inquiry. The executive summary admits that not much has changed in the five years since the previous inquiry, and many of the barriers identified in 2018 remain in place. In this report by Criticaleye Partner DWF, they highlight key findings, explain why little has changed, and discuss how to unlock the critical culture change needed.

Key Takeaways include:

  • Firms have the opportunity to take action to help lead the way.
  • Changing the culture in financial services is no mean feat and will inevitably take time.
  • A zero-tolerance culture towards harassment and bullying in the workplace needs to be embedded. 
  • Robust processes need to be put in place to investigate allegations of harassment – turning the tables on protecting perpetrators of abuse and silencing victims.
  • Culture comes from the choices made in an organisation and the standard of tolerated behaviours. 
  • Articulate what is and is not acceptable and then stand by that standard.
