Our purpose.

Our purpose.

We believe in equality. We believe in progress. We believe in the future, which is now. By creating new cultural and social norms, our employee affinity group, Women at ME, empowers women to thrive in and out of work.

Women at ME encourages education and freedom of speech, and ensures the doors to success are open to every woman.

It’s up to ME to champion our female talent; to help them excel and shape not just our culture and values, but our business results, too.

What Women at ME means to us.

What Women at ME means to us.

Here at ME, we celebrate diversity and we strive for equality. Women at ME was set up by our people to address inequality in the workplace, educate women on finance, and help provide a safe and inclusive environment for all. I’m proud to be a woman, and proud to be the Sponsor of Women at ME.

I joined this group to not only support women with their careers, but also with their confidence in the workplace.

From Empowerment Week to community meetings; International Women’s Day and our hugely popular ‘She-shirts’ worn by our ever growing supporter network – both women and men – I’m proud of our progress and am excited for the opportunities to come.

Connie Marketing Planning Effectiveness Manager

“I grew up among strong, amazing women. My brilliant mother taught me to speak up, ask questions and learn, learn, learn! My smart, vibrant sister demonstrates everyday what it means to dig deep, be resilient, to love and to live. Girlfriends have lifted me and laughed with me. These are the women who have supported, guided and shaped me. So when there was an opportunity to be part of Women at ME – a group dedicated to empowering women to thrive and excel, I jumped right in.”

Alison Chief Information Security Officer

“I started working at ME in a part time capacity earlier this year. I was really impressed by the bank’s openness to flexible work arrangements. I am supported and accepted as a part-time employee and it feels good to not have to choose between a challenging, interesting career and my family. Both are so important in supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce.”
