Second Women in Credit survey launched after huge response

Credit Strategy is undertaking a second Women in Credit survey, after a huge set of responses that will soon reveal the shocking experiences women have endured in the workplace.

Last week, Credit Strategy sought to discover the level of gender bias women in the credit profession have experienced.


The initial results reveal a troubling picture, with 85 percent of respondents indicating that gender inequality continues to exist in the workplace and more than half said they had personally experienced gender discrimination.


More than three quarters said there are not enough women on the board of their organisation and, alarmingly, more than half said their organisation does not offer training around unconscious bias.


In this follow-up survey, Credit Strategy is seeking to gain a fuller picture of the hurdles women in the credit sector face in their career. Once the results are in, Credit Strategy will analyse and report on findings.


Take the survey here.


The Women in Credit brand is expanding in 2020, with the first Women in Credit Forum taking place at the Credit Summit, providing a much-needed place to discuss issues affecting gender diversity in the workplace, highlighting women’s experiences and how cultural changes can improve outcomes for women in the profession.


Today (Friday January 24) is the final day to submit entries to the Women in Credit Awards.


To find out more about Women in Credit, visit the Credit Summit website and the Women in Credit Awards website.
