The improves gender diversity and recruitment

This case study demonstrates how the – the digital arm of the Financial Times – has used a two-pronged approach to improve gender diversity. The approach targeted senior women by establishing relationships before recruiting; it also targeted early career women via bootcamps.

In addition, the case study covers the benefits that recruiting and retaining women of all ages brings to a business.  

The FT as a whole utilises a range of programmes to help develop and sustain diversity in the workforce. Through its recruitment strategies, the organisation has made considerable strides towards achieving gender equality in STEM and improving the representation of other protected groups.
