January's news roundup
January has been a busy month for all of us at Close the Gap: we published the ultimate guide to the gender pay gap, launched our Equally Safe at Work employer accreditation programme, and opened recruitment for new trustees. If, like us, you’ve earned a break – grab a hot drink while we fill you in on all things women and work.
Working reduced hours reduces stress for both working mothers and fathers BUT a) it's women who are expected to reduced their hours to do childcare, & b) part-time & flexible jobs rarely found at senior levels - Hobson's choice for women!
Finally, Close the Gap is launching our new research Still Not Visible: Research on Black and Minority Ethnic Women’s Experiences of Employment in Scotland in an exciting conference next month. You can sign up here.
