Webinar recording: Closing the gender wealth gap by closing the women's health gap
Workplace career development and pay progression does not traditionally make allowances for people taking time off for childcare, parenthood, miscarriage and painful periods. People experiencing these can find it harder to maintain their career tracks and are left to fall behind. Employers acknowledging this and acting to create better inclusion and equity between employees will draw in the wider range of talent and skills needed in today’s fast changing world.
This webinar, draws on REBA’s brand new Gender-specific benefits research 2023, in association with Peppy, our panel shares the data as well as discusses the practical actions they are taking to support female wellbeing in order to improve careers and close the wealth gaps.
The panel explored: the compounding effect on business of talent loss, absenteeism, presenteeism and engagement when there isn’t equity between genders; the ways in which females are (often inadvertently) excluded from career progression and pay rises; the impact of reproduction-linked health on women at work; rethinking working practices and policies so they work better for all; the wellbeing and medical interventions that make a difference; the most effective employee benefits to support all genders; and how closing the health gap can help close the pay and pensions gap.
Chaired by REBA’s director Debi O’Donovan, the panel included:
- Matthew Hunt, Group Head of Pensions and Benefits Policy at HSBC
- Dr Mridula Pore, co-CEO and co-Founder at Peppy
- Samantha Sergent, Director, International Benefits at Microsoft
