Suffolk Chamber Gender Equality in Business Charter

Gender Equality in Business Charter

Suffolk Chamber of Commerce believes strongly that a more diverse workplace will deliver better results for Suffolk and for Suffolk businesses. To support this belief, we are publishing a Gender Equality in Business Charter which outlines a set of commitments that organisations can use to assess where they are today, and to commit publicly their support for gender equality in the workplace by signing up to the Charter.

The Charter aims to make a contribution to delivering the manifesto commitments of Suffolk Business Women, which is part of Suffolk Chamber.

In particular, the Charter aims to support our ambition in that manifesto to: “Develop, highlight and nurture a talent pipeline in Suffolk that ensures a wider choice of skilled business women qualified to be considered for recruitment, promotion, and to represent business on boards and in vocational positions.”

The Charter is, therefore, aspirational – and a statement of intent. Sign up to the Charter is on the basis of self-audit: there will be no inspections.


Any Suffolk-based organisation who supports the Charter’s aims and values can sign up to the Charter on this page by:
