THE Royal Navy has been hailed as one of the nation’s top places to work after being named in today’s Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016.

The unranked alphabetical list is published in partnership with Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, as part of Responsible Business Week.

Kathryn Nawrockyi, gender equality director at the charity, said: ‘(The navy has) demonstrated a commitment to fundamentally changing workplace processes and cultures to make them inclusive to all, benefitting women and men at every level in their organisation, and I hope they inspire other employers to do the same,’

The Second Sea Lord Vice Admiral Jonathan Woodcock said: ‘We have worked extremely hard to ensure that our female personnel feel valued and supported – in particular through our gender inclusion programme which aims to create an inclusive environment where women will feel respected and can reach their full potential.’
