  2. ensuring equal treatment between men and women and supporting human rights and non-discrimination;

  3. ensure the health, safety and well-being of all workers;

  4. promote the education, training and professional development of women;

  5. implement business development, supply chain and marketing practices that recognize the power of women;

  6. promoting equality through social initiatives;

  7. measure and report publicly on progress towards achieving gender equality.

In fact, to date, our numbers show substantial gender parity among our employees and the various projects we run are all geared towards gender inclusion and aimed at the traditionally male-dominated world of financial advice.
