Description

One hundred years later: Why we still have a gender gap in the workplace?


As the country celebrates 100 years of women's right to vote, women have yet to achieve full equality in the workplace and labour market. Women still face significant barriers in their career progression, and a gender pay gap. This talk will discuss some of the causes of women's disadvantage in the workplace and seek to explore solutions to advance gender equality.

Everyone is welcome, however spaces are limited. Lunch will not be provided at the event, but you are more than welcome to bring something along and eat during the workshop.

Drinks will be provided.
