The Times has revealed its Top 50 Employers for Women in 2019.
The ranking celebrates organisations who've demonstrated a commitment to changing and transforming the experience women have in the workplace.
Any UK employer can apply to be on the list providing they're transparent about the causes and impact of gender inequality in their workplace and provide details of how they're working towards reducing such disparity.
If a career working for an organisation who's committed to changing the prospects for women at work is important to you, you'll be pleased to hear that a selection of The Times Top 50 Employers for Women are hiring graduates right now - check them out below.
One company who're committed to achieving gender balance are Big Four firm, Deloitte. As well as ranking on the Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the third year in a row, they've also recently been awarded a prestigious Gender Equality Game Changer Award for their efforts in recognising that success is reliant on inclusion and respect at all times.
Lloyds Banking Group
Lloyds Banking Group are another organisation who made the list this year. Lloyds continues to make steps towards becoming a leader in gender diversity, since pledging in 2014 to increase the proportion of senior management roles held by women to 40% by 2020. Their Women in Leadership programme in 2018 saw 27% of the women involved promoted, and they are well on their way to reaching the 40% target.
Another Professional Services firm who've made the list this year are EY. They have a number of groups in place designed to further gender equality at the company, including the Women's Network and Women in Technology groups. EY also offer an Inclusive Leadership Programme that aims to challenge thoughts and behaviours around inclusion and exclusion and ultimately increase gender parity in leadership positions.
PwC are ensuring that everyone at their company, including business leaders, are responsible and accountable for delivering change. Their five point action plan, which includes running inclusive leadership programmes, publicly disclosing their targets for gender and ethnicity, allocating work fairly, ensuring their recruitment process is open and attractive to all and investing in progression coaches, is helping PwC close the gender inequality gap.
