Our organisation is a proud signatory to the Investing in Women Code, and commits to adopting internal practices to improve female entrepreneurs’ access to finance, tools, and resources they need to grow their businesses.
Goodman Corporate Finance is committed to a culture of inclusion and to advancing access to capital for female entrepreneurs. Here is a video of our director, Roxanne talking about the significance of joining the investing in women code:
The Investing in Women Code is a commitment to support the advancement of female entrepreneurship in the United Kingdom by improving female entrepreneurs’ access to tools, resources and finance from the financial services sector.
A diverse and inclusive business ecosystem is good for customers, entrepreneurs, businesses, investors, and society. BEIS and the signatory firms share a commitment to work in partnership to make the United Kingdom one of the most attractive countries in the world to start and grow a business by advancing female entrepreneurship.
The Investing in Women Code recognises that there is already valuable work underway by individual organisations to help women who are seeking to start or scale up their businesses. Signatories to the Investing in Women Code aim to build on this work.
• nominate a member of the senior leadership team (Roxanne Goodman) responsible for supporting equality in all my organisation’s interactions with female entrepreneurs;
• provide a commonly agreed set of data about my organisation’s investing or lending activities and about its own staff and leadership team to an industry body designated by BEIS, on the understanding that BEIS will collate this data and publish it on an aggregated and anonymised basis in an annual report; and
• adopt internal practices that aim to improve female entrepreneurs’ access to the tools, resources and finance they need to grow their businesses, working with relevant players in the ecosystem, and review these practices annually.
