Women in Defence (WiD) Charter
The Women in Defence (WiD) website says that "The Charter is a collaboration between the Ministry of Defence, Women in Defence UK, ADS, DGP and others, and reflects the aspiration of the defence community to improve gender balance at all levels." The Charter:
- commits organisations to supporting the progression of women in to senior roles in the defence sector by focusing on the executive pipeline and the mid-tier level
- recognises the diversity of the sector and that organisations will have different starting points – each organisation should therefore set its own targets, where appropriate, and implement the right strategy them
- requires organisations to publicly report on progress to deliver against any internal targets to support the transparency and accountability needed to drive change
- aims to enable women to thrive, enhancing the individual and collective impact of women across defence and in doing so, improving the overall output of defence.
