A year on from the gender pay gap – what are the lessons to be learnt?
July 9, 2019 9:00 am
Join us in July for our breakfast seminar, where Dr Nic Hammarling looks at what lessons can be learned from the past year, and how we can use these to tackle the race pay gap.
We have all become acutely more aware of the gender pay gap over the past 12 months, and some organisations reporting this year’s figures have clearly made some progress since last year. However, for the second year running, we saw a lot of organisations either stalling to report their results or their gap widen.
In this seminar, Nic Hammarling, Head of Diversity at Pearn Kandola, looks back over the past year – what made a difference, what went wrong, which organisations have made progress, and which haven’t. She offers recommendations on what organisations need to prioritise in order to significantly change their figures for next year, and then looks forward to addressing another important ‘gap’ that has often been overlooked by many organisations – the race pay gap.
Nic considers the lessons from the gender pay gap and discusses which aspects can apply to tackling the race pay gap – a piece of legislation that looks more and more likely to be passed. Besides, addressing the race pay gap is imperative for organisations to tackle if there is any hope of improving diversity and inclusion. After all, difference does indeed inspire business and we must celebrate and encourage all differences – not just pick and choose.
After this seminar, you will be able to:
- Understand what has successfully contributed towards reducing the gender pay gap.
- Understand what doesn’t work in reducing the gender pay, and why this is the case.
- Look towards addressing the race pay gap in your organisation with optimism.
