This year is the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act.

Whilst we have come so far, the current Coronavirus pandemic demonstrates how the work that women do, and women themselves are consistently undervalued, none more so than women in the social care sector.

This event will focus on why women’s work is undervalued, how this drives pay inequality and what we can do to change it.

Chaired by Fawcett’s Chief Executive, Sam Smethers, panelists include Carrie Gracie, BBC news presenter and author of Equal, and Wanda Wyporska, Executive Director – The Equality Trust. We will announce further speakers in the build up to event.
