We often share at Experian that we want to be an organisation where people are free to be their true selves and have an equal chance to succeed, a place where everyone is celebrated for bringing their whole selves to work. When our colleagues thrive, they innovate, and contribute to the future of the business.
It is in this spirit we welcome you to The Power of You: 2022 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report. Our second edition is really an evolution.
For the first time, we are introducing our global DEI framework and our focus on people, clients and consumers, and the communities in which we live and work.
We’re proud to be recognised as a Great Place to Work, as 90% of our colleagues agree Experian people are treated fairly regardless of their social and economic status, sexual orientation, race or gender.
In this report, you’ll see examples of the efforts we’ve made over this last year including the work towards gender equity. Our target is for 40% of our senior leaders to be women by 2024. We have engagement programs to encourage women into STEM roles within the business, while the appointment of Malin Holmberg as CEO of our EMEA and Asia Pacific business alongside the promotion of Jennifer Schulz to CEO of our North America business has increased our percentage of senior female leaders.
Beyond strengthening our own processes in promoting DEI, we’re partnering with organisations such as Disability:IN, Code First Girls and the National Urban League to help underserved communities gain fair and equitable access to credit and financial resources.
More broadly, we are continuing with our United for Financial Health programme. So far, we’ve connected with 87 million people since 2020 and remaining on track to connect with 100 million people by 2024. We were named in Fortune’s 2021 ‘Change the World’ list for our work to improve financial health.
Our aim is to be force for good. This is at the heart of our purpose exemplified by all of our 20,600 employees across 43 nations: to create a better tomorrow for consumers, our clients, our people and communities.
