THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
The focus of this conference will be the further steps that can be taken by government, employers and others to improve opportunity and equality at work for women.
In light of the findings from the Hampton-Alexander Review, including the call for investors to place greater attention on the gender diversity of company boards, delegates will consider the further steps that can be taken to improve representation in positions of leadership.
They will also examine the response from employers to the Gender Pay Gap reporting requirement introduced by government earlier this year, and with employers required to publish data by April 2018, what the first year’s data reveals about the difference between the earnings of men and women.
Further sessions will consider how employers can better address bias and discrimination in the workplace, including priorities for enhancing support for pregnant women and new parents, the challenges for improving careers advice and raising aspirations, and the steps that can be taken to reform workplace cultures.
This seminar will bring together key policymakers with businesses and trade unions, employment lawyers, charities and campaign groups, universities and academics, and reporters from the national and trade media.
