HM Treasury's Women in Finance Charter
The HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter (the Charter) is a commitment by signatory firms to work together to build a more balanced and fair financial
services industry. Credit Services Association Limited supports this initiative and became a signatory to the Charter on 19 December 2019 and our name was added to the list of Charter signatories on gov.uk on Tuesday 23 June 2020.
CSA set the following targets during 2019:
For CSA itself as a trade body: To increase the gender diversity in CSA’s senior management from a position of women making up 36% of senior management (including board directors) to women making up 50% of senior management by end 2022,
recognising that progress on this target for the majority of board directors who are elected by our membership depends on that democratic process across the CSA’s full membership. The proportion of our senior management executive team employed with
the CSA is currently 56% in August 2020.
For CSA (Services) Ltd, CSA’s wholly-owned services company: To increase the gender diversity on the board of directors of CSA (Services) Ltd (the Board) from 0% to women making up a minimum of 30% of the Board by end 2022. CSA (Services) Ltd. has already made substantial progress against this target by increasing the percentage of women represented on the Board during 2019 to 16% in October 2019 and 22% in August 2020.
Chris Leslie, is the member of the board of directors of CSA who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion within CSA. He is the Chief Executive Officer of the CSA.
