Inclusion and diversity

Inclusion and diversity

At General Dynamics United Kingdom Limited, we recognise the unique contributions of each of our colleagues are key in our ability to drive innovation. We proudly support a culture of inclusion and encourage a work environment that respects diverse opinions, values individual skills and celebrates the experiences each of us bring to our workplace. We continue to work to improve representation of diverse talent at all levels to reflect the communities in which we operate.

Gender Equality

We believe gender equality, diversity and empowerment are paramount to creating an inclusive community for all. As such, we were among the first to sign the Women in Defence (WiD) charter and revalidated our commitment to improve gender balance in the defence sector in 2023. We also support Women Empowering Defence (WED,) who champion gender equality and advocate for change within the defence and security sector.

We recognise the challenges of creating a truly equal workplace and are committed to promoting and advancing the careers of women in the defence sector.

Colleague Resource Groups (CRGs)

CRG’s are voluntary, colleague-driven groups that are organised around a particular shared interest, characteristic or experience. The CRG’s in which our colleagues take part include: LGBTQ+, Women, Armed Forces, Early Career, Multi-cultural, and Disability Advocacy. These groups have an Executive Sponsor from the Senior Leadership Team, a CRG lead, and group members/contributors.

The intent of the CRG’s is to bring colleagues together to foster a sense of belonging, inspire meaningful conversation, encourage new ways to look at issues, and drive change in how we, as a collective, show up in these communities.
