Masthaven Bank has launched a new Women in Leadership digital development programme for female senior leaders.
The programme aims to hone their leadership skills, develop them as professionals and help them to build stronger peer support communities at work.
The Women in Leadership scheme — delivered by the specialist bank in collaboration with WDI Consulting Limited — will see eight female members of Masthaven’s leadership team engage in a personalised development programme over six months.
This follows the latest research report by the bank, which revealed that 37% of brokers who stated that gender diversity was a problem for the industry, also claimed it had improved over the past five years.
Tricia Halpin, chief people officer at Masthaven Bank, who is also leading the Women in Leadership scheme, said: “The Women in Leadership programme is about enhancing the skills of our female leaders and empowering them to influence change in the wider industry.
“However, while we have achieved a good gender balance in our leadership teams at Masthaven, we recognise that there is always room to improve and will continue our recruitment and development drive for more diverse teams across the bank.”
