Speaking about the award, Chloe Chambraud, Director of Gender Equality at Business in the Community said, “Congratulations to all of the organisations who have been named as Times Top 50 Employer for Women this year.”
“Your relentless work to make your workplace more diverse and more inclusive deserves to be recognised and celebrated.”
“We are delighted to see a growing number of employers supporting men to take on more caring responsibilities and tackling the root causes of gender inequality.”
“Historically companies focused on policies and processes to address the inequality and bias that employees face on a daily basis.”
“But this is not enough.”
“It is only by changing the culture and promoting positive behaviours from the top that employers will see real change, and we look forward to supporting them on this journey.”
