Gender Pay Gap Reporting
Since we asked for your supporting in making the enforcement of gender pay gap reporting mandatory, we have seen the announcement that reporting will once again be required. It's good news and means that in six months, large business will once again have to report on their gender pay gap. But six months is a long time to wait when we know the impact the pandemic has already had on women and work. That's why we are going to ensure we keep campaigning to make women visible at all levels of decision making as we respond to the pandemic.

Last week we also launched the West Midlands Women and Girls Manifesto, which calls for mayoral candidates to commit to gender equality, improving the lives of all women and girls in the region and ensuring women are represented at the recovery decision-making table. We partnered with West Midlands Women’s Voice, Fawcett West Midlands, Homeless Period Wolverhampton, Anawim: Birmingham's Centre for Women, and Women and Theatre to produce the manifesto.
