The ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar

The ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar is an inclusive platform designed to provide all treasury professionals an opportunity to share their experience on engaging and empowering underrepresented groups in corporate treasury. It reflects our commitment to increasing the profile and integrity of the treasury profession and setting a new benchmark for leadership within treasury.

Over the years, diversity and inclusion in the workplace has been embraced by an increasing number of businesses. As a result of this, those that have integrated diversity and inclusion into their business culture have seen a rise in their brand and reputation. With those that have championed such progression having experienced an increase in their profitability.

The ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar event series aims to bring inspirational and aspirational content, covering key aspects of inclusive leadership in the treasury profession:

ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar: Unconscious Bias
Monday, 16 July 2018 | 18:00 - 20:30 | London

Unconscious bias impacts everyone’s decision making and this isn’t necessarily a negative, however within the workplace it can have a negative impact if left unchecked. Becoming aware of your own unconscious bias and understanding how to mitigate its influence is crucial to making the best decisions for your organisation and your team, and an essential 21st century leadership skill.
This was an evening focusing on unconscious bias in the treasury profession.


Mental health and wellbeing
15 May 2018 | London

Coinciding with Mental Health Awareness week in the UK, we held the third event on the ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar as a break-out session at the ACT Annual Conference. An excellent panel (Sarah Carroll, Tahir Chaudhary, Dino Nicolaides, and Yann Umbricht) chaired by Caroline Stockmann discussed the importance of mental wellness not only for individuals but for organisations overall. Awareness and communication are the keys to recognising the symptoms of and then dealing with mental illness both in ourselves and those around us. As with any health issues catching things early is always beneficial.

Engaging LGBTQ+ Allies
23 January 2018 | London

“It was a real privilege to be part of the panel at our Engaging LGBT+ Allies event, hosted by Barclays 23 January. Alongside Tamoor Ali (BP) and Year Hagopian (Barclays) and moderated by James Allan (Managing director – Corporate Banking, Barclays) we talked about why we are all passionate members of either the LGBT+ community or its allies. Points of discussion included tips as to how to become effective allies, as well as a debate on what level of ‘banter’ can or should be tolerated. Hannah Bernard (Barclays Head of Mortgages) gave a great keynote speech to open the evening, talking about her own personal experience as well as that of the bank and colleagues. The networking was also very special – engaging with others who are also passionate about supporting the LGBT+ community in the workplace – shocking to hear that c60% of those who come out at Uni go back into the closet when they enter the workplace, as was James’ own experience.

The second of our Diversity & Inclusion Calendar Events (the first one was Bridging the Gender Gap), I am clear that this was a very worthwhile programme to initiate, and I’m looking forward to future sessions on unconscious bias, ethnicity and well-being – as well as coming back to the topics we have already initiated.” Caroline Stockmann, Chief Executive, ACT


Bridging the gender gap
3 October 2017 | London

On 3 October, the ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar was launched with our inaugural event on bridging the gender gap. An eye-opening keynote speech, an engaging panel discussion and audience interaction all lead to an open, honest debate with sharing of personal insights into gender equality. From discussions during and after the event, it was clear that the speakers’ anecdotes and experience with gender equality resonated with those in the room. The lively debates of the evening provided plenty of food for thought and an encouraging launch of the ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar - and we look forward to many more inspiring events to come!
