The time for talk is up. The Gender Pay Gap is a visible and damaging number we can’t hide from. Public opinion and shareholder activism have rocketed equality, diversity and inclusion up the corporate agenda as both the benefits and business case of a balanced and diverse workforce are finally becoming accepted. A recent report by The 30% Club highlighted the millions, if not billions, of pounds that business is missing out on by ignoring the commercial imperative for putting a gender lens on your business. With a 40% Gender Pension Gap, our industry is missing out on a huge opportunity.
