  • FDM is committed to driving gender diversity in the workplace and signed the United Nations CEO Statement of Support to cement our goal. We also host ‘Women in IT Advantage Sessions’ to directly benefit female graduates, undergraduates and other women seeking to break into the IT industry.

    Only 17% of IT professionals in the UK are women. We offer a support network to help and mentor our female employees so that they can progress in a male dominated industry in a bid to tackle this shortage.

      • 50% of the management team at FDM is female
      • 25% of all employees at FDM are female

    100 Women to Watch (Cranfield School of Management's Female FTSE Report)

    FDM’s Chief Operating Officer, Sheila Flavell, is featured in Cranfield School of Management’s prestigious ’100 Women to Watch’ list, which aims to encourage a sustained board, media and government focus on accelerating the representation of women in executive and non-executive roles.

    United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles

    We signed the CEO Statement of Support for the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (UNWEP), sealing our commitment to promoting gender diversity in the workplace and wider business community.

    Think, Act, Report Initiative

    We joined the Think, Act, Report (T.A.R) initiative, which is a government campaign to drive greater transparency on gender employment issues.


    I have seen FDM’s commitment to gender diversity continue to grow through tangible and practical initiatives. Having attended FDM’s events, and followed its progress in the news, I have experienced first-hand how FDM is committed to promoting women’s leadership and gender diversity.
