One Soutwark Bridge,
A more diverse organisation will make better decisions and better reflect the needs and interests of our audience. A central part of our vision for more gender diversity is a working environment that supports women’s full involvement at all levels, and that better recognises, promotes and develops female talent.
Our work to support the progression of women into senior roles is making a difference and our gender pay gap is decreasing. There are more women in senior roles across the newsroom and business than ever before, and women make up 45 percent of our global senior management group, up 11 percent since 2016.
We have set a goal of gender parity across FT leadership groups by 2022, and will be working to achieve this sooner if possible. Each member of the FT management board also has an objective and departmental plan relating to diversity and inclusion.
Gender is just one important focus of our overall strategy to promote a diverse and inclusive workplace and we are working with our vibrant employee networks to drive a range of diversity initiatives across the FT.
We will continue to publish demographic data to encourage transparency and accountability for ourselves and our peers in the publishing industry, and we plan to include other demographics as more data becomes available.
