Capgemini Christine Hodgson - TOP 50 employers for women

Christine Hodgson, Chairman at Capgemini UK, said: “I’m delighted that we have been recognised by Business in the Community in their prestigious ‘The Times Top 50 Employers for Women’ for the third year running – a list which becomes more competitive every year. Our placing as one of just 50 companies leading the way on workplace gender equality in the UK is a
brilliant achievement. It reflects our commitment – through our Active Inclusion programme and work with our community partners – to making the technology industry a better place for women to work and thrive.”

Chloe Chambraud, Director of Gender Equality at Business in the Community said: “Congratulations to all of the organisations who have been named as Times Top 50 Employer for Women this year. Your relentless work to make your workplace more diverse and more inclusive deserves to be recognised and celebrated. We are delighted to see a growing number of employers supporting men to take on more caring responsibilities and tackling the root causes of gender inequality. Historically companies focused on policies and processes to address the inequality and bias that employees face daily. But this is not enough. It is only by changing the culture and promoting positive behaviours from the top that employers will see real change, and we look forward to supporting them on this journey.”
