Employee benefits: Julia discusses the impact of the pandemic and the economic crisis on pay gaps

20th April 2023

“Occupational segregation, where women are concentrated into low-paying industries, has a significant impact upon gender pay gaps.”

Julia talks to Employee Benefits about the disproportionate impact on women of the pandemic and the economic crisis. You can read the article here.

In the article she discusses how pay gaps were slowly closing before the pandemic. But during such unprecedented times, with many women in insecure roles, and often shouldering caring responsibilities like home schooling, their ability to earn was impacted. This inevitably has consequences for both women’s progression in the workplace and the resulting pay gaps.
