For fifth consecutive year, DWF named one of The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality

20 June 2024
DWF, the global provider of integrated legal and business services, has been listed as one of The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality 2024, for its commitment to making gender equality a priority in the workplace.

Having been established 14 years ago by Business in the Community (BITC), The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality tracks those employers taking action and making gender equality part of their business strategy at all levels. 

It forms part of BITC's Gender Equality work, which focuses on equality for all genders and those who do not identify as a gender. The organisations featured in the list have taken a proactive approach to stamp out inequalities in their workplaces by creating action plans to address disparities ranging from pay to progression.

DWF is included in the Top 50 Employers list for the fifth consecutive year.

Applicants were assessed on the work they do to remove gender inequalities in the workplace, including flexible working, family friendly policies, pay, reward, and progression at work.

Initiatives undertaken over the last year to contribute to greater gender equity at DWF include the Development of the DWF Family Support Groups, continued awareness raising and support of menopause including a World Menopause webinar on Nutrition, exercise and complementary therapies and International Women's Day 'In conversation with…' events series featuring senior leadership role models.

Seema Bains, Partner and Head of DWF's Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Group said: "I couldn’t be more pleased that DWF is once again being recognised as one of the top employers for gender equality. Great progress has been made to improve gender equality, but many inequalities still exist in UK workplaces. DWF remains committed to creating an environment and culture where all our colleagues feel valued as it is essential to our business."

Charlotte Woodworth, Gender Equality Director at Business in the Community, said: “Being named as a Times Top 50 employer for gender equality demonstrates DWF’s commitment to driving a more equitable, inclusive world. But while the employers who made the list are doing great work prioritising gender equality, there is still more work to do. From addressing pay disparities to better supporting those with caring responsibilities, many employees, women among them, still face barriers to finding employment and progressing in their careers. It is every employer’s responsibility to play their part in reducing and removing gender inequalities from the workplace, and research shows this isn’t just the right thing to do, it also makes business sense.”
