DEI at Experian

At Experian we want to create a better tomorrow for people, organisations and communities around the world. To do that we need to start with ourselves – making sure diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) runs through everything we do. That’s something we never forget – and we’re incredibly proud of the diverse culture we’ve created and are continuing to grow. We know everyone is an individual and makes a unique contribution, and our diverse workforce ensures that we can better understand and represent our consumers and customers. The different backgrounds and experiences that our employees bring to their teams drive innovation and create an inspiring workplace.

We are proud of the actions we have recently taken to support our female colleagues. Here are just a few examples:

• We have partnered with external organisations who continue to support and challenge us to ensure we continue to develop our inclusive culture. Stonewall, Investing in Ethnicity, Business Disability Forum, Working Families, and MIND to name but a few.

• We offer 26 weeks full paid maternity cover and have recently introduced support for those taking fertility treatment and additional leave if their baby is born premature. We also offer all of our employees an additional 5 days family care leave, for those emergencies that we just cannot plan for or when emotionally we need to take some time away.

• Development is important at all stages of your career at Experian. We have partnered with Code First Girls to help us encourage more women to join our business, we run an internal female development programme called ‘Accelerate’ and work with the 30% Club to provide both mentors and mentees to help boost female representation within the business.

• As a data company we know that numbers are important. We disclose our targets and progress against the number of females in our senior leadership team as well as the ratio of men to women across our business.

From establishing diverse working groups and partnerships providing accessible resources, to our involvement in the E2E 100 project, Experian is taking steps along the right path, which you can read more about here.
