Following the first decade of BBFAW Benchmarks, the BBFAW Partners decided that it was necessary to pause the annual assessment cycle during 2022 in order to conduct a thorough revision of the assessment criteria, to ensure they are aligned with evolving expectations of companies. The postponed 2022 Benchmark company assessments will be conducted in April and May 2023.
We will be hosting two consultation webinars on 2 February at 9am and 4pm GMT, offering the opportunity to hear more about the proposed changes to the BBFAW criteria and to submit responses live during the webinar.
