“The snap general election was mainly focused on Brexit, yet all parties produced manifestos which will pave the way for policy and governance over the next five years.”
Brenda from Bristol is not the only cool thing coming out of Bristol this General Election 2017.
Between now and June 8th, Bristol based startup Gapsquare will be scrutinising Party Manifestos and candidate speeches to identify their specific stance on pay transparency. These include policies on gender and ethnicity pay gap.
Besides subjecting Manifestos to analysis, we will be reviewing ways in which different parties’ economic and social policy proposals would impact pay for various minority groups. Based on these insights, we will be developing predictive models to see how the pay gaps could evolve in the next 5 years.
But we can’t do it without you. We’d like to encourage everybody to send us any articles, speeches, references, notes, minutes of meetings, gossip as well as the occasional Wicked Whispers about candidate’s take on pay transparency to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Results will be published in early June 2017.
