The Snap General Election and the Gender Pay Gap – Reflections by Sian Webb, Gapsquare

A McKinsey report published in 2015 stated that gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform than their competitors, and ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform, and so it is critical to understand what the political parties say about tackling equality and diversity within business.”
