Since April 2017 employers with at least 250 employees are required to annually publish gender pay gap information. Although improvements have been made, women are still not properly represented at all levels in the workplace. Many workplace policies, practices and cultures still need to change.

Join Westminster Briefing in Manchester on 14 June for an up-to-date brief on progress made to date and to better understand gender pay gap reporting regulations. We will discuss how an organisation can change its workplace culture to become more women friendly and what employers can do to recruit more women and better manage talent pipelines to make sure more women progress.

Key Issues to be Addressed Include:

  • Understanding the gender pay gap reporting regulations
  • Other legal developments
  • Changing individual mind-sets and an organisation’s working culture
  • Making an organisation a more attractive place for women to work
  • The role of men as agents of change
  • Removing barriers that prevent women entering the workplace
  • Barriers to promotion: helping women overcome them
  • The role played by networks, sponsorship, mentors & champions
  • Practical policies employers can implement
  • Understanding & tackling Imposter Syndrome
