  • Women in the workplace phone-in

    What’s your experience of being a woman at work? A new inquiry into Women in the Workplace has just been launched by the Parliamentary cross party Business, Innovation and Skills Committee. It will be looking at whether the legislation meant to tackle inequality is working – from pay to promotion to gender stereotyping. What’s your experience? Could you get a job you qualified for? Are you getting paid what you deserve? How easy is it to get promoted? What have been your barriers to entering, keeping or progressing in the workplace? What do you want the committee to consider? Jane Garvey will be joined live by the Conservative MP, Rebecca Harris, a member of the committee. We want to hear about your issues - it’s your chance to influence government policy.


    Phone lines are now closed.
