Gender Pay really is right at the top of the leadership agenda at present particularly following the recent submission deadline set by the government for the publishing of Gender Pay Gap information by large employers.

“The next step is for companies to develop strategies to close that pay gap.  If companies want to reap the rewards that a diverse workforce brings they need to act now ‘

‘The publishing of data for some might have been an uncomfortable truth.  It’s important not to shy away but to be honest and confront the problems and I will be suggesting ways this can be addressed in my presentation.”
