Closing the Ethnicity Gender Pay Gap in the UK: what will it take?

28 September 2017  18:00 - 21:00 GMT+1 (BST) | Private event

Earlier this year, the Government stated that closing the gender pay gap is a policy priority; as part of the new regulations, thousands of employers will now be required to report their gender pay gaps by April 2018. But it is important to consider how that gender inequality is experienced by different ethnic groups to ensure that all women in Britain see their gender pay gap closed. A recent report by the Fawcett Society highlighted the challenges faced by women of different ethnic groups, especially those of African and Caribbean heritage. As we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Black History Month in the UK the FutureProof Foundation launches the Women of Worth campaign - social action to create social change.

On the 28th September, our panel of leading men and women will take to the stage and share with the audience their own insights and experiences as we ask them:
