The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list celebrates UK employers that are building gender equality into their business strategy and have committed to creating inclusive workplace cultures and supporting women’s progression at work. We’ve worked closely with Business in the Community to guide our progress, and are delighted to be in the top ten percent of companies recognised in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women over the last ten years.
Here at Capgemini UK, we are dedicated to supporting equality, respect and inclusion in the workplace. We are proud that strong leadership commitment is driving our Actively Inclusive culture with respect at the very heart of it; empowering and mobilising all Capgemini team members to play a part in creating a truly inclusive workplace.

Charlotte Woodworth, Gender Equality Campaign Director at Business in the Community said: “Business in the Community’s Times Top 50 Employers for Women list is the longest running and most widely respected award for employers committed to achieving equality for women at work. This year marks ten years of the awards, and the bar was especially high. A decade of expertise and experience underpins Business In the Community’s assessment, which sees organisations reviewed across a wide range of areas including transparency around pay practices, family friendly policies and to what extent the gender equality agenda is embedded into wider strategy.”
