How to reduce the pay gap between women and men?
On average, there is currently a 14.6% difference in pay between men and women in Switzerland. In concrete terms, this means that until 22nd February, it’s as if women were working for free. This is Equal Pay Day.
We have to break with preconceived ideas: it’s not just about having children. The most recent research points out that this gap already exists at the very beginning of a professional career.
In concrete terms, what can be done to reduce this wage gap?
- What measures are being proposed by the political world?
- How can companies analyse their employees’ pay from a gender perspective?
- How can men take action to reduce this pay gap? Pay inequality indeed penalises women, but it’s not only women who are affected: men are also indirectly affected if we assume that potentially their wives, daughters and mothers are paid less than their male colleagues.
Our speaker, Johannes Smits, Director at PwC and a specialist on this topic, will explain what can be done to reduce the gender pay gap and will give us advice, valid for both men and women.
