The relationship between actions to promote gender equality and profit: a position paper

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This paper presents the research findings from all three phases
of the research project. The methodological issues associated
with establishing this relationship are also considered, as are
relevant examples of best practice employers and the impact
that positive action has had on their business. Three main areas
are considered – actions to address segregation in the
workforce (discussed here as increasing workforce ‘diversity’),
addressing vertical segregation by improving the representation
of women at senior management level and the implementation
of flexible working practices that enable women to increase
their participation in the labour market by combing paid work
with caring responsibilities. These issues are considered key to
closing the gender pay gap.
