The Gender Pay Gap in the Legal, Financial and Professional Sectors - Call for research participants

Friend of E2W Jack Daly is undertaking Postgraduate Research at Centre for Employment Relations, Innovation and Change Leeds University Business School into closing the gender pay gap in Legal, Financial and Professional sectors and needs your help! 

The legal obligation to report gender pay gaps has highlighted positive and negative aspects of gender equality within the professional sectors where reducing, if not eliminating, the gender pay gap remains a large aspiration. Jack’s research hopes to understand those existing policies that attempt to address the gender pay gap and any problems organisations have in their successful implementation. Furthermore, it hopes to explore any social aspects of work that may act as barriers to career progression for the increasing number of women into a sector once traditionally seen as “men’s work”.

Make 60mins in your busy day to help Jack?

Interviews will be conducted through video-communication (Zoom, Skype, etc) or by phone call. Interviews can be arranged at a time that suits you and outside of traditional working hours if required. There is no strict structure to the interview, but it hopes to understand career histories, the nature of socialisation within your industry and, if applicable, strategies to address the gender pay gap.

For more information please contact Jack at Leeds University Business School busjdal@leeds.ac.uk (Further details are included on the .pdf below)
