BCC: Business Will Support Determination to Break the Glass Ceiling

Commenting on the Prime Minister's announcement on tackling the gender pay gap, Dr Adam Marshall, Executive Director of External Affairs and Policy at the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

"The best way to right the wrongs of the gender pay gap is to work towards the day when we see the old glass ceiling disappear altogether. To achieve that, we need to start in the classroom - inspiring all young people to see all the career options open to them. We need to offer more, and better, childcare support to keep talent in the workplace. In short, we need to look at a range of issues to solve the injustice of the gender pay gap.

"Not all companies will cheer the introduction of compulsory gender pay gap reporting, because it takes a complex set of issues and reduces it to a few headline statistics. But all businesses will welcome the PM's determination to make more progress in this area, and will want to work with Government to get the right answers."
