Tackling the underlying issues that contribute to gender pay inequalities in Wales in employment and self employment.
Facebook and Apple have announced that they will pay for female employees to freeze their eggs as part of retaining female talent in the workplace.
In 1979, Collins and Scott famously proclaimed in The Harvard Business Review that ‘everyone who makes it, has a mentor', and in doing so effectively cemented the concept of mentoring as being essential to achieving business success in our professional culture.
Over the last 35 years mentoring has continued to grow in popularity, with a variety of business support organisations offering mentoring opportunities to clients, and touting mentoring as being essential to business success.
Let’s Hear it for the Girls: Learning Gender Equality Lessons
Despite the many advances in legislation and policy, creating equality for women in the workplace is still an ongoing endeavour. It is crucial that we continue to address the gender pay gap and create fair and equal opportunities for women, but are we doing enough to prevent these issues from taking root with the next generation of workers - girls and young women?
The aim of the WAVE project is to understand and ‘interrupt’ the ways in which gender pay inequalities are consistently reproduced through occupational segregation in employment and self employment, through the ways in which ‘women’s work is contracted’ and through the operation of pay systems.
