Supporting and reflecting our communities

In addition to supporting networks and communities of colleagues internally on our Inclusion & Diversity journey, Bank of Ireland is committed to a growing number of key partnerships to further support communities and like-minded organisations in our journey.


We are proud to sponsor Pride and to have become a platinum level Friend of Gloria, Dublin’s Lesbian and Gay Choir. We are a key sponsor of TeachFirst, an education charity tackling educational disadvantage in England and Wales, and Young Enterprise Northern Ireland. We are also a key sponsor of the annual NDRC Female Founders Programme to promote inclusion and diversity throughout the technology industry. We will continue our partnership with AHEAD (Association for Higher Education Access & Disability) into 2017, and welcome graduates from the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities to join our teams within the bank.


We are also delighted to sponsor Ireland Smart Ageing Exchange’s Ingenuity Programme, an accelerator programme targeted at mature business owners and entrepreneurs, in conjunction with DCU Ryan Academy.


We always welcome feedback on our inclusion and diversity journey. If you would like to get in touch, please contact
