#WorkEqual Campaign – Highlighting the Gender Pay Gap

Since November 2016, we have staged an annual, month-long campaign to raise awareness of the gender pay gap and related issues. This year, we’ll be highlighting the gender pay gap with a day of action on 13th November, the day on which women in Ireland stop earning, relative to men. That’s because the current gender pay gap of 13.9% means that woman in Ireland effectively work for free for the last 50 days of the year, when compared with their male counterparts. Check out our info-graphic on the Irish gender pay gap here.

Among the events taking place as part of our #WorkEqual campaign will be;
