A message from our Group Chief Executive

A message from our Group Chief Executive

The horrendous recent events in the US, and the subsequent global reaction have sparked necessary and overdue discussion about racism that sadly many of our colleagues and customers still face.

Having spoken to colleagues and listened to feedback, I know these events have had a profound personal impact and there are deep feelings of anger, disappointment and frustration.

Wesleyan stands with its colleagues, customers and communities in recognising Black Lives Matter.

As a business founded in Birmingham, one of the UK's most diverse cities and one that proudly serves a diverse group of professionals - we will do more to drive long-overdue change. We have work to do both in and outside of our organisation and are committed to doing so.

We are taking the right amount of time to listen to colleagues at all levels and from all backgrounds to determine the right action plan for our business that will drive positive change.

At a minimum our plan will ensure the actions we take can be measured and I will be directly accountable. As part of this commitment I will also be increasing the Inclusion and Diversity budget to provide dedicated resource that will support the delivery of the activities we agree.

I wish to personally thank the colleagues and customers who have taken the time to share their stories, educate and drive Wesleyan to be better - we are here for you.
