Operation Service & Implementation Delivery at Fidelity International

About

Bio: Mark is a Senior Manager in the Operational Service & Implementation Delivery Team at Fidelity International based in Dublin. Mark was the Fidelity's representative & community engagement lead for the financial services inclusion network (FuSIoN) in Ireland for more than a year. He is currently the LGBT stream lead for Fidelity for Everyone employee network in Dublin.

Mark believes when the leadership of a company advocates support for D&I, it empowers people to promote the D&I principals, generate D&I ideas, lead events, etc. by giving them the confidence that they will be supported. In Mark's 4 years at Fidelity he has witnessed a huge effort by both local & global leadership teams to promote diversity & inclusion as a business priority. The results are clearly evident through the amazing initiatives that are delivered each year locally & globally that help to educate people and create awareness across all levels and all cultures.

Mark says "The key to inclusion is through awareness, the message can be shared in books, training courses and communications but importantly it needs to come from lived experiences too. As our society becomes more diverse, people who never needed to think about inclusion are awakening up to the idea. Difference and change can be uncomfortable for some but I believe it is up to those who passionately believe in inclusion to help bring people along the journey. We may not always agree but maintaining open dialogue is crucial for the message to succeed".
