Sian Webb, Partnerships Manager at Gapsquare shares some Gender Pay Gap wisdom with the Talk With Stitch team.

“As someone who spends a lot of my time looking and analysing numbers and figures, not a lot surprises me these days! However, I have been surprised at the number of charities and businesses that are reporting a higher than average gender pay gap and not accompanying it with an explanation or narrative about why they have one and importantly, what they are going to do to reduce it over the coming years.”

THE GAPSQUARE TEAM ON USING DATA TO ELIMINATE THE GENDER PAY GAP

Posted by Hazel Lush on Apr 4, 2017 11:27:00 AM

The Office of National Statistics puts the national gender pay gap in 2016 at 9.4% for full-time employees, although if you include part-time workers, the pay gap climbs to 18.1%. When you start looking at the breakdown across industries, the differences are even more stark. Construction and building trade supervisors have the highest gender pay gap, at a staggering 45%. Financial managers and directors come in second at 36%, even when their workforce has 41% women. This is not to say that other industries have a much smaller, or sometimes negative gender pay gap.
