14 Jul 4 Ways to Promote Gender Equality in the Workplace
Despite the strides we have made in gender equality, female workers still get paid less than their male counterparts, with women significantly underrepresented in senior management roles. Discrimination and unequal pay is illegal, but the facts show that we still face huge obstacles in equal opportunities, and employers play a vital role in overcoming these hurdles. The glass ceiling is hard, but surely breakable, and through a number of actions, your company can cast the stones to the invisible barriers.

However to really understand the causes, you need to reflect on the figures more broadly.
