The persisting difference in earnings between women and men (the so-called Gender Pay Gap – GPG) is 15% in the European Union. While the multiple causes of GPG are of very similar nature worldwide, some countries started looking into the problem earlier and with a more effective approach. In our panel discussion, we will bring forward tools and policies that are in place to reduce GPG at the level of the state and key stakeholders in EU countries as well as worldwide. Special focus will be given to gender-neutral job evaluation and experience with reporting and certification up to the present point in time.
