Acas response to Government's announcement on Gender Equality

Wednesday 03 July 2019

The Government has announced a series of actions that aim to tackle gender inequality today. The Government Equalities Office (GEO)'s plan includes proposals to address the inequalities that women face at work. Acas' response is included below:

Acas Head of Diversity, Julie Dennis, said:

"The Government's new report shows that there's a clear divide between men and women when it comes to high paid and senior jobs. Having children also adversely impacts career prospects for women compared to men.

"We welcome these new proposals that aim to reduce gender inequality within UK workplaces."
