Welcome

Close the Gap works in Scotland on women’s participation in the labour market.

We work with policymakers, employers and employees to influence and enable action to address the causes of women’s inequality at work.

  • closethepaygap profile imageOn the 50th anniversary of the equal pay act, why are we still so far from equal pay? Today on our blog we take a look at how unequal pay happens, why it's still an issue & what employers & policymakers need to do about it closethegap.org.uk/news/… Twitter embedded image 1 day ago
  • LivingWageScot profile image"The undervaluation of women’s work means that women are the vast majority of low-paid workers, not just in key worker roles, but across the labour market. This means that women are the majority of those living in poverty, which is a direct cause of child poverty."
    closethepaygap profile imageToday is the 50th anniversary of the equal pay act. Fifty years on we ask why are women still receiving unequal pay for equal work, and what will it take to address this inequality once and for all? closethegap.org.uk/news/… Twitter embedded image 2 days ago
