Danny Harmer

As Chief People Officer, Danny encourages diverse applicants to vacancies at Metro Bank through specific wording on job adverts and transparent salaries for all positions. She has introduced a gender balance check as part of the annual reward review recommendations to help leaders understand the gender impact of decisions during the reward process, and a requirement for diverse longlists for all jobs, especially more senior hires. Danny speaks at and supports events and panels for the Metro Bank Women on Work ERG and signed up to the Women in Finance Charter alongside many other initiatives, leading to one of the lowest gender pay gaps in banking, an increase in women in senior leadership roles and more women appointed to the Board. Danny is passionate about making sure that men and women are included in conversations on gender and Metro Bank offers equal shared parental leave to all colleagues regardless of their gender.  Danny is Master of the Guild of HR Professionals.  She mentors several women and attended the BBC 50:50 initiative to have more women included in the media.
