The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality 2024 Launch
Thu, 11 January 2024 @ 11:00 – 12:00
This is an online event.
This event is open to members and non-members of Business in the Community (BITC). It has been designed to be of most benefit to those working in Corporate / External affairs, CSR/Responsible Business/ ESG, Diversity and Inclusion and HR/People/Talent management.
The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality is the UK’s most high-profile and well-established listing of employers taking action to create workplaces where everyone, regardless of gender, can thrive.
Women and minoritised genders are disproportionately affected in times of more significant political and economic uncertainty, as gender inequalities deeply entrenched in working life have a greater impact. At a time when the UK continues to experience a cost of living crisis, women are paid less, are more likely to be employed in severely insecure work and have less access to highly paid, highly skilled roles due to the need of more women having to balance work and caring responsibilities. As such, the need for employer intervention to ensure greater gender equality and avoid a backslide in progress has never been greater.

About Business in the Community’s work on Gender Equality
BITC’s gender equality campaign exists to accelerate progress towards a truly equal working world, where someone’s gender doesn’t determine their chance of fair pay, equal influence, or shape how included and safe they are at work.
The commercial imperative for achieving more gender-equal workplaces is clear: it enhances employee engagement, boosts productivity, meets the diverse needs of customers and suppliers, and improves brand reputation, leading more gender-balanced workforces to outperform their less-balanced peers by as much as 2 percentage points annually.
