Welcome to DiverCity™ Podcast

We’ve seen a growing appreciation of the value of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in the financial services industry. Organisations have increased their focus on D&I initiatives, but is this simply marketing rhetoric? Some would argue that we’ve seen great progress, whilst others would say there is still much to be done.

For each episode of DiverCity™ Podcast we invite recognised leaders and influencers – people who are pioneers in their own right – to talk about areas of transformation and aspects of D&I that need greater focus. Our contributors offer their insight and practical ideas to help organisations and individuals drive change.

The podcasts are hosted by Julia Streets, a city entrepreneur with more than 25 years of experience in financial services. Each podcast features external perspectives and industry research, all of which can be found on our resources page.

If there’s a topic you’d like to hear discussed, a commentator you’d like to suggest, or if you have any feedback, please get in touch.
