Diversity and inclusion

At Barclays, we believe that creating an inclusive and supportive culture is not only the right thing to do, but also what is best for our business. It makes us better at understanding the needs of our customers and clients, and it creates a sense of belonging and value that enables our colleagues to perform at their best.

Ultimately, we are trying to build an organisation that is more equal at all levels. We do this, not simply because it is right, but because it makes us a more effective organisation too.

UK Pay Gaps 2020

As part of Barclays commitment to becoming a more inclusive organisation, we know we must address pay gaps where they exist. We have published our UK-wide gender and ethnicity pay gaps for 2020, along with some context to help understand the data.

More information about our progress in becoming a more inclusive organisation is set out in our first ever Diversity and Inclusion Report. (PDF 1.5MB) This report sets out our strategy to build and maintain a culture that makes everyone feel included and supported, providing equality of opportunity for talent at all levels and from all backgrounds to grow.


At Barclays, we believe every one of our employees, clients and stakeholders brings a set of unique talents and perspectives to the table.

We aim to foster a culture where individuals of all backgrounds feel confident in bringing their whole selves to work, feel included and their talents are nurtured, empowering them to contribute fully to Barclays vision and goals.

We have five global pillars of focus: Disability, Gender, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender), Multicultural and Multigenerational.
