In her previous job, our CEO Zara Nanu considered herself a superhero, supporting women to move out of incredibly challenging situations and into work , but by doing so, she became aware that the difficulties weren't over. Gaining access to the workplace was not the end of the battle for women, there was still a lot more to do.

People will make or break a business. More diverse people will go even further and make a business innovative, challenging and perhaps even more importantly, profitable. On average, a business with diverse teams will have access to increased market share and 9% higher EBIT.
But how can we build more diverse businesses when current data shows companies have high gender and ethnicity gaps? These manifest themselves both in low proportions of diverse employees as well as high pay disparities for these groups. It does not seem businesses are making the most of powering growth with the right people.
"217 Years, for the women you work with to be operating on a level playing field, for our daughters to be in with the same chance at success as our sons."

Our expertise is in processing the data around equality and diversity, as well as driving a business forward in making tangible changes.

Working with Zara Nanu on her thriving project Gapsquare has been a whirlwind, I've watched as the company moved from strength to strength, to Berlin, New York and Paris, heading to global conferences, accelerator programmes, tech demos and working with hundreds of companies on gender pay gap reporting in the UK.
But Zara also always finds time to be a great leader at Gapsquare, from small things like reminding us to take breaks in the office, take walks when we're demotivated, or to step out of the box to gain inspiration - to bigger things like motivating the entire team whilst juggling the company (and still getting to school to pick up her kids). It often left me wondering, what is it that makes someone able to lead in this way.
Recently, in a conversation about her experience as CEO, the week before Mother's Day, I asked her about her leadership style - what is her secret?
Easy, she says: "being a good leader is a lot like being a good parent".
Is the public sector being left behind? Not any more.
Gapsquare will be speaking to European governments at the Vienna conference designed to bring tech start ups, innovators, enterprises and the public sector together. The conference creates opportunities for new enterprises to connect with the public sector to drive partnerships that benefit citizens worldwide. Gapsquare's CEO Zara Nanu will be sharing Gapsquare's expertise in tackling ethnicity and gender inequality in the workplace using tech. The Pioneer event creates opportunities for governments to work alongside the fast-moving tech and business world, building the efficiency, range and capacity of their services and by 'introducing startup-driven innovation in the public sector'.

We know that the gender pay gap regulations in the UK are in full swing, but have you ever wondered what these regulations look like in countries outside of the UK? There are a number of rules and laws coming into place/in place and fingers crossed - we're moving forward!
Today is a milestone day for Gapsquare as we launch an enhanced version of our software – version Emmeline - our most expansive pay gap analysis tool yet.
The name is in honor of Emmeline Pankhurst, leader of the suffragette movement who helped some women get the right to vote. In 1999 Time named Pankhurst one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century, stating that "she shaped an idea of women for our time; she shook society into a new pattern from which there could be no going back”.
This is very relevant for our software as we have developed it to be used by businesses to shake their operations into a new world without the gender pay gap. The software helps businesses make the most of their female talent, and therefore ensure growth beyond any competitors.
So what is so different in Emmeline compared to Gapsquare V2 we had until now? Everything. Below are the three key points that set Emmeline on the path to narrowing the gender pay gap and how they will help you with your gender pay analysis.
