What is the Young Women’s Trust employer pledge?
Young Women’s Trust is calling on employers to sign our pledge by filling in the form to make apprenticeships work for young women.
Alongside the pledge we hope that employers will also produce a plan laying out the steps they plan to take to increase the number of young women in their apprenticeship schemes.
Why should employers sign the pledge?
We want to work with employers to help them make the most of the huge potential of women apprentices. The pledge is not a quality mark or official accreditation or an endorsement of all aspects of Young Women’s Trust’s work. The pledge is a great chance to show your commitment to gender diversity.
Organisations signing the pledge will also:
- Join a growing campaign of top UK businesses who want to make apprenticeships work for young women
- Be invited to participate in seminars and workshops to share best practice and learn from the work other organisations are doing
- Be offered tailored media support to publicise their involvement in the campaign
- Have the opportunity to contribute to a progress report in March 2017 highlighting good practice as well as any challenges that employers continue to face
