How would you describe your firm's commitment to diversity?

2015

"I would rate Bank of Ireland very highly for diversity as they try to make everyone in the Group feel included regardless of who they are."
Graduate, Dublin
"I find that everybody is treated equally at the Bank."
Graduate, Dublin
"Overall I think that both the company and its staff are very diverse which is good, and this wide diversity ensures that there are people with different skills, ideas and ways of thinking at the Bank."
Graduate, Dublin
"Bank of Ireland sponsored and took part in the LGBT pride parade, also organised a multicultural day in Percy Place from what I have heard (I'm not based there)."
Graduate, Dublin
"In terms of diversity at the Bank, I am not really sure of the Bank's initiatives, as I have not heard much discussion of them. As a graduate I can see that there are quite a few women here, but I do think that there are fewer in senior positions."
Graduate, Dublin
"Although I feel that the upper management team is very male dominated; I do think that there is a good mixture of men and women, and a good amount of ethnic minority and LGBT employees, none of whom have mentioned to me that they have felt any kind of discrimination. Provision is certainly made for maternity leave."
Graduate, Bristol

2014

"The majority of workers here are white British or Irish, and I believe that there is an equal spread of males and females."
Graduate, London
"The organisation seems to have good respect for women; however there are very few women in very senior positions within the Group. The Bank of Ireland seem open to the idea of flexible/part-time working hours for parents. I haven't seen any instances of ethnic minority/LGBT issues either negative or positive."
Graduate, Dublin
"The company appears to be addressing the male/female ratio in the workplace, but other minorities do not seem to be addressed from my perspective."
Graduate, Dublin
"More women are being recruited which is crucial as the bank needs to diversify from the conservative, middle aged, male dominated bank."
Graduate, London
"I personally have not seen any evidence of discrimination and I don't feel at a disadvantage as a female."
Graduate, Dublin
"This is an area that could be improved upon but Bank of Ireland Group is an equal opportunities employer."
Graduate, Dublin
"There are many women, non-white and people of other religions working in the bank."
Graduate, Dublin
