Event description

Description

On the 28th of September 2017, Koreo will host a special Good Women event to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Black History Month.

Earlier this year, the Government stated that closing the gender pay gap is a policy priority. As part of the new regulations, thousands of employers will now be required to report their gender pay gaps by April 2018. But it is important to consider how that gender inequality is experienced by different ethnic groups to ensure that all women in Britain see their gender pay gap closed. A recent academic report highlighted the challenges faced by women of different ethnic groups, especially those of African and Caribbean heritage. As we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Black History Month in the United Kingdom this year - we ask:


Closing the Ethnicity Gender Pay Gap in the UK - What will it take?

During this event, we will:

  • Identify the main issues and barriers affecting women of ethnic minority as economic actors
  • Recognise good practices that can be replicated and scaled up to benefit others
  • Inspire action for change by governments, businesses, and civil society


For our contribution to that agenda, we are partnering with the FutureProof Foundation to host an event which will bring together women from across the private, public and social sectors to celebrate equality. The event, hosted at Impact Hub Kings Cross, will include inspiring speakers but there will be bags of time for neworking too.

If you would like to partner with us, or if you are interested to share your own story, please email Floree at floree@koreo.co.

FREE!
The deposit will be returned the following day after the eventor if you cancel at least 48 hours in advance.
