According to a World Economic Forum Gender Gap Report published in July 2022 the UK’s gender pay gap ranking is 22 out of 146 countries, with Iceland, Finland and Norway topping the table with the smallest gaps.

What is the future for gender, ethnicity, and other pay gap reporting?

Equal Pay | Gender Pay | Gender Pay Gap | Gender Pay Reporting | Ethnicity Pay Reporting
