Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

The data reveals that men are typically paid significantly more than women in most UK businesses.

Julie Davies tells the Independent: “This happens when women don’t negotiate their salary in their first role due to societal pressures, and so there is a cumulative effect as they move from one job to another. Often women don’t ask for more money and are just grateful to be offered a job.”
