The event showcased the progress made in helping build an inclusive culture at RBS, recognised individual contributions and looked at what’s next for the network.

The Rainbow Network, which is open to all RBS employees, is one of the largest LGBT networks in the banking sector and was established in 2005. Working alongside the bank’s Inclusion team, the network supports its members both personally and professionally, and is also involved with LGBT charities to enhance the lives of LGBT people.

A short awards ceremony highlighted the work of the network’s regional representatives and their achievements in 2015 towards strengthening the network, supporting LGBT colleagues and making RBS an inclusive place to work.

Rishi Madlani, the network’s Global Co-Chair, said: “We’re proud of the progress we’ve made in helping RBS develop a truly inclusive culture, one that enables all colleagues to bring the best of themselves to work. It’s great to see all the work we’ve put in over the last ten years, working with the bank’s Inclusion team, paying off.”
