Gender pay gap Government Response web forum

On 26 April we are questioning the Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, Justine Greening, on the Government's response to our recommendations on closing the gender pay gap.

We want to use your evidence to question the Secretary of State on why the Government has not accepted many of our recommendations. We would like your input on three areas of the Government's response:

  1. Increasing the number of jobs advertised as available to work flexibly 
  2. Sharing parental leave
  3. Supporting women back into the workforce

Deadline for submissions: Wednesday 12 April 2017 at 12 noon
