This November, as part of our #WorkEqual campaign highlighting the gender pay gap, we’re teaming up with Banter for a very special panel discussion. This event will take place to mark the day when women have effectively stopped being paid for the year, relative to men in Ireland!
Banter is a series of series of public interviews, conversations and discussions, hosted by the irrepressible Jim Carroll. Attention on 13th November will turn to the current gender pay gap in Ireland of 14%, and workplace equality more broadly. Most importantly, we won’t just be looking at the issues, we’re looking for the solutions!
The panel for the evening is Sonya Lennon (Dress for Success Dublin), Senator Lorraine Clifford-Lee (Chair of the cross-party parliamentary group on workplace equality), Mark Paul (business affairs correspondent with The Irish Times) and Deborah Somorin (founder of Empower the Family and Senior Associate at PwC). Join them as they draw on research and personal experience, discussing the ways in which we can push forward as a country to make Ireland a fairer place to work, and end the gender pay gap.
#WorkEqual Banter will take place at The Liquor Rooms (Wellington Quay, Dublin 2) on Tuesday, 13th November. Doors open at 6pm and the event gets underway at 6.30pm followed by an audience Q&A. Tickets are now available here and all proceeds will go to Dress For Success Dublin to fund our work supporting women in the workplace.
