Working towards achieving gender equality

We published our first gender pay gap report in 2020 and have made strides in internal awareness of the gender gap, we continue to work to ensure this improves.

We implemented recruitment processes that remove gender and unconscious bias from job adverts and operate blind CVs in the short-listing process.

We promote our inclusive working practices and operate equal pay across our businesses in like for like roles.

We strive to lead the way for women in tech, sponsoring Digital Women Wales, a monthly meet-up for women in tech, raising awareness of opportunities for women in Wales and the south west of England.

We sponsored a girl guiding cyber security badge for Brownies this year and have a wide commitment to empowering all women and girls.

This year, we celebrated LGBT+ history month, Pride Cymru, International Women’s Day, International Men’s Day, World Mental Health Day, International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), Mental Health Awareness Week, Children’s Mental Health Week and Time to Talk day.

Different backgrounds, experiences and mindsets make for a productive, varied and effective workforce – not only is encouraging and supporting diversity and equality the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.
