‘No one can make you feel inferior without your consent’, said Eleanor Roosevelt, one of history’s great feminists

In the age of racial and sexual equality, it is sometimes difficult to believe that there is still an issue with gender equality in the UK. Men working full time still, in some instances, earn more than women. The issue is rising on the Government’s agenda though. It has recently been announced that companies of a certain size will be compelled to make public the pay levels of their employees. But is enough being done? Can more be done in terms of legislation to tackle the problem? Or is any legislation that aims to exert anymore governmental control over business a bad idea?

How can the stubborn gender pay gap be closed once and for all?

Sign up to for our special gender pay gap webinar, in the week of International Women’s Day,to hear a pertinent debate on the topic here. You will be able to hear it tomorrow at 11am.

Our guests will be:

Ed Bowyer – Partner – Hogan Lovells International LLP

Jessica Wade – WISE Young Women’s Board Member

Amanda C Jones – Partner – Maclay Murray & Spens LLP
