The Times Top 50 Employers for Women

Taking action on gender equality:
The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2022

The entry process for The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2022 list is now closed. Entries are currently being assessed. The assessment process focuses on transparency, the causes behind gender gaps, what companies are doing to address these structural issues and the impact of their actions. The evaluation includes, but is not limited to, roles of senior leaders, actions to increase the representation of women in senior positions, intersectionality, supporting parents and carers, stopping bullying and harassment and what they are doing to promote gender equality outside their organisation.

We use the term woman to include all people who self-identify as women and engage with their current or prospective employers as such. When we use the term gender equality we take this to mean equality for all genders and those who do not identify as a gender, i.e. non-gender conforming, gender fluid or non-binary individuals.
