Women in Finance Charter

As part of our commitment to Gender Balance at Aon, we are proud to be signatories of the Women in Finance Charter. This charter is a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to work together to build a more balanced and fair financial industry in the UK.

By signing the charter Aon has pledged to promote gender diversity by:

  • having one member of our senior executive team who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion;
  • setting internal targets for gender diversity in our senior management;
  • publishing progress annually against these targets in reports on our website;
  • having an intention to ensure the pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against these internal targets on gender diversity.

We have a target of 30% of women in senior leadership and this is measured in our balance scorecard as follows:

  Actual 2015 Actual 2016 Actual 2017 Actual 2018 Actual 2019
% of women in senior leadership 9% 12% 13% 16% 18%

Julie Page, CEO, Aon UK Limited is the senior executive responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion. Bonuses for executive leaders of the organisation are determined against financial and non-financial objectives, which are set at the beginning of the year.  The non-financial measures will include a commitment to increasing the diversity of our workforce.

We have a number of activities in place to drive greater gender diversity across all levels at Aon, including programmes designed to build our talent pipeline of female colleagues at all levels. Find more information here.
