In an Equality Hub exclusive we bring you the keynote address from the Gender Pay Gap National Conference 2017 by the Rt Hon Anne Milton MP, Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills and Minister for Women.

9,000 businesses with over 250 employees, plus public bodies, are now on a steep learning curve to report their gender pay gap by April 2018 and shape their response and reaction accordingly.

The 2nd Annual Gender Pay Gap programme and online broadcast for businesses and large public organisations took place on Thursday 12th October 2017 – half way through a critical year – viewers should watch these presentations to give adequate time to measure your organisation’s preparations against best practice and ensure you are ready to report on time.
