Our commitment to diversity
We're continuing to work hard to improve our gender balance and remain steadfast in our commitment to redress this by attracting and retaining women throughout all levels of the Company. By 2030 at the latest, our ambition is that at least 50% of our Executive Committee will be women. That’s why we’re taking action to tackle the issue with initiatives to encourage women into entry level positions and support them through their careers.
BAE Systems was one of the 50 founding signatories of the ‘Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter’ and the ‘Women in Defence Charter’. The Charters commit the UK’s aerospace and defence sectors to work together to build a more balanced and fair industry for women. We have also signed the charter for 'Women in Maritime' which similarly pledges to increase the number of women in the sector and create an environment for women to realise their aspirations.
