About the project
Close the Gap works across Scotland with employers and employees, to encourage and enable action to address the gender pay gap.
Project partners include the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Skills Development Scotland, Equality and Human Rights Commission, and the Scottish Trades Union Congress.
The project has been operating since 2001. The first phase of the project, which ran from 2002 until December 2005, was funded under the European Equal initiative. Since 2005 the project has received Scottish Government funding.
