About WORK180

Empowering every woman to choose a workplace where they can thrive

Breaking down unfair barriers

WORK180 is helping women steer their career with complete confidence from the very start. We do this by flipping the recruitment process 180 degrees and putting the power in the hands of the candidate.

Unlike other job boards, it’s the employers who need to impress here. As well as sharing their benefits and policies for you to consider, they must prove their commitment to diversity and inclusion. And like you, we have high standards — only 80% of companies that apply to become an Endorsed Employer meet our criteria.

“We help women make career decisions with confidence by giving them the answers to questions that you don’t necessarily want to ask during an interview.”

Our story

Gemma Lloyd and Valeria Ignatieva founded WORK180 after experiencing a working world that was failing women.

Having worked in the technology industry for several years, Gemma had experienced both the impact of workplaces that did and did not support women. For Valeria, a single parent to a son with a disability, the continuous rejection of her need for flexible working meant she couldn’t even get back on the career ladder.

Together, they created WORK180. This innovatively transparent job board now helps women around the world to confidently apply to workplaces with a proven commitment to diversity, inclusion, and gender equality.

We help employers improve and progress

Every two weeks, a WORK180 Endorsed Employer improves a policy. These policy changes impact 280,000 employees a year.

Our social impact: achieving equality for everyone

To ensure employers offer a fair and equal workplace for everyone, our pre-screening criteria goes beyond gender. We also ask questions that focus on age, ethnicity, ability, and sexual orientation. Here are some examples of what we want to know:
