Equal Pay Day – 18th September 

Equal Pay Day was originated in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men’s and women’s wages.

At the #LAB4GE project, we acknowledge the positive impact that the Equal Pay movement had on women’s rights, but also that more needs to be done to achieve true equality in name your country

Research proves that regular audits close the pay gaps faster. Main factors contributing to the gender pay gap are: discrimination and bias in hiring and pay decisions; women and men working in different industries and different jobs, with female-dominated industries attracting lower wages; women’s disproportionate share of unpaid caring and domestic work; lack of workforce flexibility to accommodate caring and other responsibilities, especially in senior roles, women’s greater time out of the workforce impacting career progression and opportunities.

The Learn Abroad to do Better at home for Gender Equality project is funded by Erasmus+ and more information about the project are available here: Lab4GE
