When Barclays colleagues started sharing their own stories around mental health and wellbeing in 2013, we didn’t anticipate the wider impact that the campaign, This is me, would have both within Barclays and beyond. This is me continues to be a driving force for challenging the stigma around disability and mental health and in 2016 it was shared with the City of London’s Lord Mayor’s Appeal, with over 400 organisations taking part with the potential to reach over 3 million employees.
We continue to co-chair the This is me steering committee under the auspices of the Lord Mayor’s Appeal charity. With an impact across our global offices, This is me has now become our storytelling vehicle across all of our colleagues, showcasing the powerful personal stories that make up our culture – beyond disability and mental health.
