Gender pay gap


62 per cent of female legal professionals don't believe fixing the gender pay gap is a priority for management

Research into the legal profession’s gender pay gap from Next 100 Years and Gapsquare™ (part of XpertHR®) has found 84 per cent of women in law believe they won’t see true gender pay equality in their working life, while 29 per cent said it won’t happen in the next 100 years. Over half (54 per cent) believed it will be the next generation of workers who will see true pay equality. 62 per cent said fixing the gender pay gap is not a priority for senior management.
