Eversheds named in The Times top 50 employers for women

Eversheds named in The Times top 50 employers for women 2016. 

Eversheds has been named as a leader on workplace gender equality by being included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016.  The unranked alphabetical list is published in partnership with Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, as part of the charity’s Responsible Business Week. The firm has set the standard for female partner (26%) and board member (30%) ratios, with a gender working party that drives strategy and engages stakeholders.

Eversheds Chief Operating Officer, Kathryn Fleming, said: “We're proud to be included in the Times list for a fifth year running. A committed and sustained approach to gender equality of opportunity at Eversheds has ensured that all stakeholders within our business know that it is something to be wholeheartedly embraced.”

Kathryn Nawrockyi, Gender Equality Director AT Business in the Community, said: “Huge congratulations to Eversheds on being named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016 – the process was highly competitive so they should be extremely proud of their success. They have demonstrated a commitment to fundamentally changing workplace processes and cultures to make them inclusive to all, benefitting women and men at every level in their organisation, and I hope they inspire other employers to do the same.”

Emma Tucker, Deputy Editor of The Times, said: “The Times is pleased to celebrate Business in the Community's 25 years of campaigning for gender equality by publishing a special report to mark its 2016 list of the Top 50 Employers for Women.  The supplement will highlight the advances these 50 organisations have made in increasing opportunities and creating working environments where women are free to reach their full potential and also explore those areas where more needs to be done.”

The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list involves a comprehensive submission process managed by the gender equality campaign at Business in the Community.  All organisations within the Top 50 have demonstrated that gender equality is a key part of their business strategy, with consistent commitment to creating workplaces and cultures that are inclusive of women from entry level through to senior leadership.
