How to foster inclusivity with storytelling in the finance sector
Triple Point is a purpose-driven investment manager creating opportunities to help address society’s biggest challenges. Corporate and social responsibility is baked into its mission and ways of working. So, it’s no surprise this financial company is also dedicated to creating a more inclusive and equitable work environment.
A signatory of The Diversity Project, Triple Point is celebrated as a top small business to work for in London. This year, their focus on DE&I included a storytelling campaign for International Women’s Day to showcase their commitment to gender equality. Keen to democratise this process and give a voice to people from across the organisation, Triple Point chose StoryTagger as an easy way to capture meaningful stories and break down any barriers to contribution.
StoryTagger was a powerful and effective way to share and leverage authentic video stories that we would have struggled to capture otherwise

Developing an inclusive and equitable work environment
Triple Point strives to create an environment where employees thrive and can be themselves. This helps to achieve higher levels of employee engagement and better talent retention. Plus, by bringing together diverse perspectives and experiences, they can innovate and build even better customer relationships.
International Women’s Day is a global red-letter day on the DE&I calendar, taking place annually on March 8th. It offered an ideal opportunity for Triple Point to celebrate and highlight the social, economic and cultural achievements of women.
The goal of the campaign was to show their commitment to gender equality and applaud the many brilliant women across the organisation and what the day means to them.
What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
Miriam Speidel, Learning and Development Specialist, devised the “What does International Women’s Day mean to you?” campaign in collaboration with internal champions. A great way to empower women within Triple Point, they aimed to highlight diversity at every level of the organisation. The same question was asked of their male colleagues too; engaging allies to think about the day and hear from people they know.
By using StoryTagger, Miriam and the team were able to compress video production schedules. After quickly setting up their campaign on the platform, they invited people from across the business, at all levels and different departments, to share their stories. Each creator had a 7-day submission deadline allowing people to record at a convenient time in their busy schedules. This flexibility meant the team captured a wonderful, varied collection of insights and heartfelt perspectives to blend into a powerful montage.
Contributors included Triple Point’s Group Chief Operating Officer, Head of Public Sector Funding, a Business Development Trainee and the Associate Director of Private Credit. Each storyteller shared their own unique and authentic perspective on this important topic in response to the brief and prompts provided via StoryTagger. They spoke about:
- Everyday acts of heroism
- Inspirational women in finance
- The need to create a more inclusive workplace for future generations
- What can be achieved by working together
