With the 5 October 2021 deadline for reporting 2020 gender pay gaps now passed, the impact which the pandemic has had on progress to reduce gender pay gaps can clearly be seen. The effect of furlough and childcare on women over the past 18 months coupled with the financial strain many organisations have been under has resulted in, at best, no change in gender pay gaps and, at worst, an increasing gap between the average pay of men and women. So where does that leave organisations in terms of bringing the gender pay gap back up the agenda? And what other mandatory reporting obligations could be coming?

Shoosmiths’ own Emma Morgan, Partner, alongside Trish West, Head of Reward at ATS Euromaster Limited, Simon Langley, Head of Diversity & Inclusion at CDC Group plc and Paul Brown of Leicester YMCA, will discuss:

  • the shortfalls in the current gender pay gap reporting regime,
  • what can be done to reduce the gender pay gap,
  • the obstacles that would need to be overcome for ethnicity pay gap reporting to be mandatory and
  • what else employers might consider reporting on in the future.

We do hope you can join us for what should be a lively debate and very much look forward to connecting with you.
