Following International Women’s Day, we look at three major issues women have to deal with in the office environment.
International Women’s Day may have been and gone. But questions around how to achieve workplace equality shouldn’t only be discussed once a year. Although progress has been made, and laws about to be passed to solidify flexible working rights for employees with young children, within my male-dominated industry, the pay gap between the genders remains vast.
