This includes more women in senior grades and in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths roles.  Our current priorities also include embedding diversity & inclusion considerations into all our processes, practices, policies, systems, education and training so that anyone with any difference can work and thrive in BAE Systems.  We’re very proud to be the Headline Sponsor of the 2022 APM Women in Project Management Conference supporting the great work the APM and the APM WiPM SIG are leading in development and promotion of women working in project management environments and to maximising the availability of expertise in the project management profession."
