Creating a place for everyone Inclusion

We value the diversity of our employees and are committed to creating an inclusive culture. We prize fairness, want to attract and retain talent and enable employees to reach their full potential. We encourage employees to bring the best of themselves to work, to recognise and celebrate differences and to be respectful and curious about diversity.

Our employee led networks are important partners in helping us create an inclusive culture. These networks inspire our employees to develop and enhance their skills and build successful careers. Most importantly they are open to everyone.

Our efforts have been recognised. We are well represented across the major UK industry diversity & inclusion benchmarks. We have two of the industry's largest internal networks:

Our internal networks

Group Gender Network

The Group Gender Network represents over 500 members across the Coutts. As part of the Group Gender Network our goal is to attract, develop and promote female talent within the business.

We support women in private banking by:

  • Recognising female colleagues and highlighting case-studies which show colleagues what they can achieve
  • Strengthening the pipeline of female talent by supporting greater diversity in recruitment and promotions
  • Providing relevant, high-quality professional development opportunities, tailored to different career levels
  • Expand our networks to create opportunities for learning and collaboration

The Rainbow Network

The Rainbow Network has been providing insight, education and support to help members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community since it was founded in 2005. We’re run by volunteers, and use our influence to make sure NatWest Group provides the right services to customers, colleagues and communities, while seeking to improve NatWest Group as an employer of choice for LGBT staff and allies.


We believe that, by promoting awareness of disability and its impact, we can create a better bank for colleagues, customers and the communities we serve. We're working together to help develop a truly inclusive culture within NatWest Group, one that enables people with all abilities, and those who care for others, to be recognised and valued for their talents.

Families and Carers

The Families and Carers Network promotes a supportive work environment to enable parents and carers to achieve a great work-life balance. We arrange regular seminars and webinars covering matters relating to both parenting and caring responsibilities. We also hold monthly coffee meets where our members can network with people in similar situations to share and learn from their experiences.

Multicultural Network

Our mission is to raise awareness of cultural differences, enhancing NatWest Group’s offering to our diverse population of employees, customers and the communities we serve. We are open to all colleagues, and proactively support in recruiting, developing and retaining talented people from all backgrounds. We also represent all cultures through celebrations, and raise awareness to help combat any potential barriers.
