AG Named Times Top 50 Employer for Women

International law firm Addleshaw Goddard (AG) has been included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality 2024.
Published in partnership with Business in the Community, the annual list recognises organisations that demonstrate a commitment to gender equality and inclusivity in the workplace.
The firm was assessed based on its efforts to address gender inequalities, including facilitating flexible working, implementing family-friendly policies, and ensuring fair pay, reward and career progression.
Some of the gender initiatives AG has implemented and expanded in recent years include a female mentoring programme, a hub providing support for women experiencing menopause and a return-to-work programme for new parents. The firm also recently promoted a record number of women to its partnership.
The list is not a ranking of employers.
Business in the Community (BITC) has been running The Times Top 50 for 14 years, as part of its 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.

Mary Peterson, Head of Responsible Business & Learning at Addleshaw Goddard, said:
"It is an honour to once again be included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality.
"This recognition underscores our unwavering commitment to gender equality and reflects the efforts of various people across the firm to foster an inclusive, supportive and equitable workplace for everyone."

Charlotte Woodworth, Gender Equality Director at Business in the Community, said:
Being named as a Times Top 50 employer for gender equality demonstrates Addleshaw Goddard'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.
