Our Global Gender Pay Gap survey in the PR industry revealed a £12,600 difference in salaries between men and women.
It's shameful that an industry dominated 2/3 by women should have a significantly higher gender pay gap than the $9,000 difference cited today by the World Economic Forum.
As Francis Ingham, Director General, PRCA has highlighted their needs to be gender pay gap reporting in the PR industry - and not just for organisations with 250+ employees.
We need to make changes now - not wait 47 years for the gap in Western Europe to close or even worse the 170 years quotes as the global figure.
London, 26 October 2016 In response to the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Gender Pay Gap Report 2016, Francis Ingham MPRCA, PRCA Director General said: “We strongly welcome the World Economic Forum’s work on this important issue but yet again it highlights that a lot more needs to be done to close the gender pay gap once and for all. “On average women still earn $9,000 less than men globally and it will take 170 years to close the economic gender gap, which the WEF has rightly said is ‘too slow’. This means that women are not getting paid for five hours of their working day.
