2018

"The company puts on various events and training related to diversity and LGBT etc. The organisation is diverse at most levels, but this is not necessarily reflected at board level. However, this is more a reflection on the lack of diversity in the real estate industry as a whole a few decades ago and I am confident that this will improve over the next few years."
Graduate, Birmingham
"The company is very pro diversity and regularly sends around emails and puts on events to promote diversity. Diversity training is part of the graduates' mandatory training."
Graduate, London
"Diversity is a key driver and part of every plan for the business. It's a highly inclusive environment."
Graduate, London
"As an office, we are not hugely diversified (for example, there are no female partners or senior directors) but recent communications from head office suggest that this is changing."
Graduate, Chelmsford
"Graduate recruitment is now over 50% female but there is still a lack of women in the highest paid jobs."
Graduate, London
"There's a large number of women and the company seems to be flexible with maternity leave."
Graduate, Lewes
"The majority of people in my office are women so I would say that there is good diversity in the office."

2016

"BNP Paribas are one of the most diverse groups worldwide and BNPPRE follows their lead. Everyone in the office enjoys their work and tends to stay at the company for a long time. The morals of the firm plays a part in this."
Graduate, Birmingham
"BNPPRE make a real effort in terms of diversity. We have a diversity and inclusion committee, who host and arrange regular events addressing all types of diversity-related issues."
Graduate, London
"We have a week each year that is dedicated to promoting diversity in the work place. The week includes a number of guest speakers and events."
Entry level, Birmingham
"There are various events that are held each year to promote diversity."
Graduate, London
"We have diversity events and I don't think diversity is an issue in the business."
Entry level, Birmingham
"It's good once you know about it. I'm part of the multicultural network steering committee (a bank-wide committee), which is great for networking as well. But getting to know about it isn't easy. The grads had a talk on diversity and inclusion. If it wasn't for this I would have had no idea. We also operate a diversity week in October. Apparently our counterparts in our Birmingham office went to a few of these events, which is really good."
Graduate, London (City)
"Generally speaking, the office is very diverse and the company makes an effort to raise awareness of diversity issues via its annual 'diversity and inclusion week'."
Graduate, Birmingham

2014

"The company seems to be very diverse; I would estimate that there is a 50:50 split between men and women at a lower level. Senior Directors are mainly male."
Graduate, London
"There was a diversity week last year but this was only in London."
Graduate, Birmingham
"From my perspective a lack of diversity doesn't appear to be an issue within the company."
Graduate, London
