In 2017, UK organisations with over 250 employees were required by law to publish information around their gender pay gap. The gender pay gap is an equality measure which calculates the difference in hourly earnings between women and men, closing the UK’s gender pay gap has been a consistent struggle for several years with minimal progression. The COVID-19 pandemic had a direct impact on the progression of equal gender pay, as the gap widened from 14.9% in 2020 to 15.4% in 2021. Pay gaps are direct indicators of systematic diversity and inclusion problems within the business and help shine a light on areas in need of improvement.
During this webinar, award winning cyber security consultant Lisa Ventura, will delve into gender pay gap reporting and discuss how organisations can utilize their reports to close the gap to create equal pay for every employee. Lisa’s passion within cyber security has led her to raise awareness about equality for women in the cyber security sector, which has won her countless awards.
