Event description

Description

Public relations has a problem. Its women are paid £5,784 a year less than its men. In an industry which claims to be strategic, forward-thinking and modern, this harks back to a more old-fashioned era and weakens the claim that PR is a professional business service.

But why is there such a startling gulf in pay between male and female PR people? What effect does this issue have on the industry’s ability to attract and retain high-calibre practitioners? And what can be done to change things?

To answer these questions - and others - the CIPR is teaming up with its Diversity and Inclusion Forum and Greater London Group to run a panel discussion entitled: “Closing PR’s Gender Pay Gap”.

CIPR Past President Sarah Pinch and CIPR Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year 2015 Valentina Kristensen will be joined by Janice Guy from Jungle Green Market Research and John Brown from Hotwire PR to discuss the causes, effects and potential solutions to this issue, with comments and questions invited from the audience.

The event will take place at CIPR HQ in Russell Square on Tuesday September 5th between 6:30 and 8:30pm. Attendance is free and refreshments will be served once the discussion has finished.
