Gender pay gap reporting: where do we go from here?

The UK’s gender pay gap reporting regime is now in its third year, although due to the Covid-19 crisis the Secretary of State decided to pause the requirement for businesses to report in 2020.
There is broad, cross-party agreement that the gender pay gap, and gender inequality in the workplace more broadly, are important policy areas—but as we enter a period of profound uncertainty in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and Britain’s exit from the European Union at the end of the year, it is a critical to ensure that the legislation not only survives, but keeps up with international best practice.
Join us for the launch of research comparing international gender pay gap reporting legislation undertaken by the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership, Fawcett, the Thomson Reuters Foundation and Latham & Watkins, as we highlight the strength of the current UK legislation, as well as areas of opportunity moving forward.
The event will be introduced by Antonio Zappulla, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, and begin with a presentation of the report’s findings from Laura Jones of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership.
