Speaking about the announcement, Emma Tucker, Deputy Editor, The Times said, “In the seven years since The Times first published the Top 50 Employers for Women supplement we have seen great advances towards gender equality in the workplace.”

“However, more remains to be done both in the boardroom and on the shop floor and we are again delighted to support Business in the Community’s campaign to create a fairer and better working environment for women.”

Alongside the list, Ashurst, the Army and Unilever have also been named as Winners in the Business in the Community Gender Equality Awards 2017. These awards celebrate outstanding progress and examples of best practice, impact, innovation and individual achievement.

Kathryn Nawrockyi, gender equality director at Business in the Community, said, “Huge congratulations to all the organisations in The Times’ Top 50 Employers for Women 2017 and to the Business in the Community Gender Equality Awards winners and finalists.”

“They have made significant progress to understand and address the barriers to equality that women face at work and put fundamental workplace culture change at the core of their activity, recognising the benefits this brings to women and men at all levels and to the organisation as a whole.”

“I hope other employers will follow their example.”
