We are a member of Business in the Community’s Workplace Gender Equality campaign to share ideas with other industries to improve the attraction and retention of women in the workplace. In 2013, we strengthened our commitment by becoming signatories to Opportunity Now’s Project 28-40, a pioneering study into the experiences of women in the workplace. The focus of the study is to gain valuable insight and identify actions aimed at improving the attraction and retention of women.
