Mace expects more than 25% of senior-level colleagues to be women by the end of 2026
Mace has launched a new equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) strategy to establish its ambitions over the next three years.
Three years after launching its first EDI strategy, the new strategy sets out a roadmap of objectives for the business.
Mace has committed to develop and retain talented diverse people, create a psychologically safe environment for all colleagues to be themselves, and increase the diverse representation at all levels of leadership.
By the end of 2026, the company expects more than 25% of senior-level colleagues to be women and all board and steerco meetings to have in attendance at least 30% women and 10% underrepresented ethnic colleagues.
Mace has also pledged to become the first construction company to collaborate with its strategic supply chain partners to increase diversity and ensure all partners have an EDI strategy in place.
The company has four distinct targets to achieve within the next three years:
- Increase the representation of women to at least 35% of its global workforce
- Increase the representation of employees who have a disability by at least 3%
- Increase the representation of LGBTQ+ identified colleagues by at least 3%
- Improve the UK pay gap by at least 10% year on year
Mark Reynolds, Mace Group chair and chief executive, said: “To redefine inclusion we need to be brave, reflective, and relentlessly pursue a better way – and our board, leaders and people are committed to just that.
“This strategy is our guide to help us evolve in the direction of our purpose and ambition together. We look forward to the journey ahead.’’
