Gender Equality Network

Our Gender Equality Network is a new initiative established in 2021 as a sub group of our D&I Committee.

The aim of the Gender Equality Network is to understand and address issues which may contribute to an imbalance in the gender make up of the company and ensure that we provide an environment in which everyone can succeed.

Reviewing our recruitment process

Attracting more women to the team is a key focus for the Gender Equality Network. To do this, we’re making a number of changes to the process, including reviewing the language in our job descriptions and promoting our flexible working approach more clearly, as well as looking at how we can reach more women.

My Career Journey

Our My Career Journey programme is a monthly lunch and learn style session focused on increasing the visibility of, and access to, senior leaders within the firm.

Each month, we talk to a different member of the 7IM team and give everyone the chance to hear how about how they have reached their current role, their experiences along the way and the advice they’d impart to those looking to do the same.

By understanding people’s journeys and seeing the challenges that they’ve overcome or how they manage their situations, we hope to show others what is possible and help them achieve their full potential.
