Inclusion and diversity | Intermediary Only Lender
inclusion and diversity
We’re passionate about improving inclusion and diversity within Accord and the wider mortgage industry. We want to create an environment where everyone can be themselves and thrive. It gives a better experience to our colleagues, brokers and their clients - building a stronger business.
Inclusion and diversity partnership charter
At Accord, we have high expectations of our colleague’s behaviour, and in return, we expect the same from those we work with. We've set it all out in our Inclusion and Diversity Partnership Charter so you know what it means to work in partnership with us. You can see more on the right hand side.
Jeremy Duncombe, Managing Director at Accord Mortgages:
We are committed to diversity and inclusion and ensuring that everyone is treated with dignity and respect at work and this charter reinforces our stance on unacceptable behaviour and discrimination across our business.
We don’t work in isolation. To make the biggest difference, we need to go beyond what we do internally, and work collaboratively across the industry.
We’re members of the Diversity and Inclusivity Finance Forum (DIFF).
We’re members of the Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association (IMLA) and we’re part of their Inclusion and Diversity Group, meeting regularly to drive positive change.
We work with the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) and IMLA taskforce and have contributed to the Working in Mortgages website - supporting the industry to be diverse and inclusive.
Commitment at every level
We’re part of the Yorkshire Building Society (YBS) Group. The Group is committed to celebrating diversity and delivering lasting change for everyone, whoever they are. Find out more about our stretching goals and current progress in 'Our Promise'.
