Hosted by Mercer, this event launches and discusses Business in the Community's new Working with Pride report. The report presents a deeper dive into the experiences of lesbian, gay, Bi+ and Trans+ people in the workplace through two of our flagship pieces of research, the Mental Health at Work Report 2018, in partnership with Mercer and the Equal Lives Report 2018, in partnership with Santander.
Last year, over 10,000 employers reported their figures, but how many understood those? The pay gap can be explained by a mix of factors: the over-representation of women in lower-paying roles and low-paid sectors, the fact that women still carry most responsibility for caring and unconscious bias and discrimination. How do these play out in your organisation?
