Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion at Nationwide
At Nationwide, we don’t label people. What we do is offer a wide and growing range of inclusive networks for you to find help, support and inspiration and welcome participation in all our Employee Network Groups (ENGs) from everyone within Nationwide.
Diversity and employee networks
“ Our employee networks are integral to the Diversity and Inclusion agenda, and through regular network meetings and events and an online forum, they are a great opportunity for you to engage with and be involved in shaping and influencing the ED&I agenda here at Nationwide, wherever you're based. ”
Each network is sponsored by a senior leader and although each group has different priorities, they work together to share views, ideas and initiatives that help us develop a better understanding of the many communities that make up Nationwide. The ENGs support the delivery of our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) Strategy.
