Case studies needed for the Scottish Parliament's inquiry into the gender pay gap in Scotland
The Scottish Parliament's Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee has launched a call for evidence on the gender pay gap in Scotland. The official inquiry will launch in mid February and they're now working on case studies which will be used to generate media and public awareness of the issues involved.
The key media aims will be to raise awareness of the importance of the issue, and encourage individuals and organisations to give evidence to the committee, which will in turn help shape recommendations made to the Scottish Government and other organisations in the Committee’s report.
If you have experience of the gender pay gap and want to find out more about being a case study, you can speak with Cat Synnot in the Scottish Parliament's media relations office. She is looking for case studies where the individual feels able to discuss their direct experience of the gender pay gap, what – if anything – they were able to do to tackle this, and finally, what they believe needs to happen to make a positive difference to the current inequalities in men and women’s pay.
They are also interested in speaking with potential case studies where employers are a strong example of good practice in addressing the gender pay gap, and are able to discuss the positive difference this has made.
