Where are the women? The cost to the West Midlands


Share

We have supported a report with the Fawcett Society and West Midland Women's Voice to demonstrate the extent of the gap in women’s representation across the West Midlands.

The report combines economic analysis, data from April’s Gender Pay Gap Reports, new commissioned public polling of the WMCA region, and best practice evidence. It explores the gap in women’s representation at the top of business and politics, what that costs to businesses and society, and the changes that could be made to employer practice and public policy to drive a shift in the current stark picture.

The report quantifies the impact of the gender gap and for the first time it demonstrates the extent of public support for action by businesses and the Mayor to get more women to the top. It also suggests some actions that can be taken by both to achieve change.
