In teken van de European Diversity Month biedt de EU de komende tijd een drietal workshops aan. De laatste in de reeks vindt plaats op dinsdag 15 juni 2021. In deze workshop wordt ingegaan op de loonkloof tussen mannen en vrouwen. De workshop wordt gegeven in het Engels.

Equal pay for equal work is one of the EU’s founding principles. However, women often remain unaware about pay discrimination in their work. A lack of wage transparency does not allow a proper assessment of the reasons for pay inequalities. Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, has committed to table measures to introduce binding pay transparency measures. The Commission therefore presented on 4th March 2021 a Proposal for a directive to strengthen the application of the principle of equal pay for equal work  or work of equal value between men and women through  pay transparency and enforcement mechanisms.

What do you think about the proposal, is it relevant and timely? How easy it actually is to apply the measures on pay transparency in practice? Are the employers sufficiently well-equipped to identify “work of equal value” in their organisation? How could the European Commission/social partners/others support organisations?

Join us in discussion and share your experience.
