RBS Women has over 13,000 members globally almost a quarter of whom are male. The network is run entirely by volunteers and aims to champion the potential of women in the bank. Six people (5 women, 1 man) make up the managing committee of the Network and together they are responsible for 30 different strands and regions who deliver activity across the bank. The network was responsible for over 250 pieces of activity in 2019 including launching a mentoring app, running a bank wide development programme for junior women and launching a ’50 Ways to Fight Bias’ initiative. The team who run the network are all volunteers overseeing 30 different strands and regions. In 2020 they will launch a bank wide speed mentoring programme and are working to create a product to help the predominantly female customers who are victims of financial coercion.
