Yoox Net-a-Porter Group has been included in the Top 50 Employers for Women, recognising UK companies that are building gender equality into their business strategies.
A new report, published by The Times in partnership with Business in the Community, analysed employers who were breaking gender equality boundaries within the tech sphere and were “committed to empowering women”. Marks & Spencer was also featured.
The luxury fashion group said women represent two-thirds of its employees, almost double the average in the technology sector. It said one of its three sustainability pillars is dedicated to empowering women, which includes a range of initiatives both within YNAP and in partnership with the industry.
These initiatives include its Women in Tech programme, which offers female talent social media forums, speaker events, mentoring and bespoke training to ensure their advancement within the sector.
YNAP chief people officer Deborah Lee said: “We are delighted to receive this fantastic accolade, recognising our leading work on empowering women and our efforts to increase the representation of women in tech. We continue to look to the future as we seek to drive a shift in education and training to help meet the demand for digital skills and create female digital innovators.”
