Gender Pay Gap

The gender pay gap refers to the disparity in income between men and women in the workplace, with women typically earning less than men for performing similar roles or work of equal value. This wage differential is often attributed to a variety of factors, including discrimination, occupational segregation, and differences in career advancement opportunities with regard to part-time work for (child) caring responsibilities. Addressing, reducing and eventually closing the gender pay gap is a crucial aspect of promoting gender equality and ensuring a fair compensation for everyone.

Since 2015, SAGE aims to eliminate the Gender Pay Gap in the entirety of the labour market, with a special focus on the public sector’s role of “leading by example”.
