Our FY22 Purpose and Inclusion Report

Transparency lies at the heart of trust, and our Purpose and Inclusion Report aims to provide just that: the work we’re doing, how much we are achieving and where we are (for now) still falling short. It offers metrics on our commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion, as well on our commitments to the environment, social responsibility and our own governance. It shows too that when we bring our people, capabilities and technology together in line with these commitments, we’re not only helping our clients build trust and deliver sustained outcomes, we’re also bringing our purpose to life.
