Ireland’s Women in Finance Charter

Ireland’s Women in Finance Charter
13th September 2023

CubeMatch has become an early signatory to Ireland’s Women in Finance Charter, a commitment to achieve greater gender inclusivity and balance across all levels. At CubeMatch, we acknowledge the importance of women representation and the need for gender equality, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace.

Published in April 2022, led by industry and supported by the Government, Ireland’s Women in Finance Charter underpins the industry’s ambition to see increased participation of women at all levels. This includes junior, middle and senior management, leadership and board roles within Financial Services organisations based in Ireland. Fostering and harnessing the talent and experience of all women in Financial Services is crucial in developing a strong pipeline of talent. This will lead to greater diversity of thought, experience and leadership styles in decision making processes, for the economic benefit of the business and the wider community as a whole.

Gender Equality and indeed Inclusivity for all, is high on our Senior Management Team’s agenda. As a company we have set ourselves targets to ensure women are represented at all levels across the company and will continue to put supports and systems in place to ensure we achieve these targets.

Some of the ways we do this are:

  • When hiring or promoting roles, we will ensure a diverse range of CVs are presented – we will always hire the best candidate.
  • The flexibility around Hybrid work also allows many women to come back to work, particularly those who have taken career breaks to raise families or be carers. We are actively working with organisations who specialise in helping highly skilled women return to the workforce.
  • We will be working to identify talented employees to help them gain the experience necessary to enter Senior Roles, providing executive coaching is just one way we do this.
  • We will also be working with industry pioneers and other Government initiatives to remove any blockers to gender equality within Finance. We recently introduced training around unconscious bias to ensure that all employees and candidates are given the best possible opportunity.

Our targets for 2024:

  • C-Suite Board to increase female representatives by 10%.

  • Achieve 50% male/female ratio for Principal and Senior Practitioners.

  • Maintain Consultant Practitioners at a higher female percentage (60%) than male percentage (40%), in order to develop a succession plan of Principal/ Senior Female Practitioners with a long-term goal of balancing the C- Suite internally.

  • Junior Consultants to bring female Consultants intake to 50%.

  • Senior Management to maintain levels of 50% male and 50% female.
