Mind the pay gap: Greenwich seminar on gender and equality at work

Equal PayThe gender pay gap and the impact upon women of a changing labour market will be discussed at a University of Greenwich seminar on Wednesday 20 January.

“While the gap between women’s and men’s pay has been narrowing, in the last few years there have signs that progress has slowed,” says Professor Sian Moore, Director of the university’s Work and Employment Research Unit, part of its Business School. “In particular, the gap in the public sector has increased for two years running.

“This seminar offers an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in equality issues to understand what is happening to the gender pay gap in a period of austerity, when we’re seeing changes to women’s employment and cuts in public sector jobs.”

The event is open to all and will feature talks by three experts from, respectively, the Office for National Statistics, the TUC and the Institute for Fiscal Studies. There will be the opportunity for those attending to ask questions.  More
