Default Re: Standard Chartered Bank LGBT

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is an intrinsic part of the bank's Here for good brand promise. The philosophy goes beyond simply recognising and accepting the differences in others; we continually work to ensure that those differences are valued and respected. Through inclusive leadership it aims to enable its people to have a voice and to contribute fully to the business growth.

It pursues the goal of balanced leadership, reflecting the diversity of its client and customer base. It is committed to supporting financial education and empowerment in the markets where it operates. To this end, it also provides financial literacy training for those from disadvantaged communities.

In 2012, it helped create employment opportunities for people with disabilities, through initiatives such as targeted recruitment career fairs in Ghana and Sri Lanka and recruitment drives in Uganda and Qatar.

Within the workplace, it continued to strengthen the reach of its employee networks with the launch of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) networks in Singapore, Hong Kong and the UK, ensuring a more inclusive environment for its people.
