Gender Pay Gap: Part Two

In the second episode of our two-part pilot, we start to uncover some ways that the gender pay gap can be tackled

Last time out in The Ladder, we started our audio investigation into the gender pay gap. We discovered how the issue is just one of the manifestations of wider inequalities that women face across a range of industries. Whether just starting out, or as the founder of a fast-growing startup, our interviewees shared a range of honest and revealing stories that showed how the deck can often be rigged against female professionals.

In this episode though, we move towards some solutions. From big businesses to agile, fast-growing companies and for individuals alike we’re on a mission to uncover the ways in which the pay gap can be tackled. We speak to Melanie Levick-Parkin, Heather Melville OBE, Hailley Griffis, Malin Persson, Imriel Morgan and Till Leopold.
