As Global D&I Council Chair for Standard Chartered Bank, Simon has initiated a major shift in the organization’s Diversity and Inclusion agenda. His leadership has accelerated the pace of change, resulting in Inclusive Leadership workshops for over 16,000 leaders and in CEOs taking more accountability for the delivery of local D&I plans and objectives. Simon has also overseen the introduction of initiatives such as a global Fair Pay Charter; the disclosure of the Gender Pay Gap in key markets; and the implementation of safety and security initiatives in 21 markets, in order to support female colleagues living and working in countries with a history of heightened violence. David’s approach to engage the organization has resulted in a positive trend across several indicators, including female representation in senior roles, which increased from 27.7% in 2018 to 30.14% today, and employee inclusion index scores, up from 78% in 2019 to 82% in 2020.
