The Bank of England needs to adopt the “spirit of the millennial” and embrace varied approaches to problem-solving, as well as boosting gender and ethnic diversity, central bank governor Mark Carney said on Thursday.
Carney made his comments on the same day that Kristin Forbes, the BoE policymaker who has taken the most critical stance towards the bank’s post-referendum stimulus, said she would not seek a second three-year term at the BoE.
Carney said the BoE had targets to boost its proportion of female, black and Asian staff, but that it was important too to increase what he described as “cognitive diversity”.
