Who We Are
BT is widely recognised as a progressive employer and we ensure that men and women have equal opportunity to work and advance their careers within the company. Our Gender Champion Chris Ainslie supports our gender equality strategy.
In the 2011/12 financial year, women made up 21.28% of the BT workforce - 19.71% of team members and 24.06% of managers. Of new recruits, 29.68% were women – including 36.19% new graduates and 7.14% modern apprentices.
What We Believe
The BT Women’s Network helps our female employees to achieve their full career potential, providing contacts, mentoring, coaching, advice and guidance to its members. It provides workshops on managing careers, understanding aspirations and networking know-how. It also runs events looking at strategies to increase women’s confidence and develop leadership skills. There are satellites of the Women’s Network in Europe, North America and South East Asia, providing extended networking opportunities.
