Since November 2016, we have staged an annual campaign to raise awareness of the gender pay gap and related issues. Each year, we highlight Equal Pay Day, the day on which women in Ireland stop earning, relative to men.

This year, due to Ireland’s current pay gap of 14.4%, Equal Pay Day falls on Monday, 9th November 2020 which means that women in Ireland effectively work for free for the last 52 days of the year, when compared with their male counterparts.

This year, we will be marking Equal Pay Day with a social media and media relations campaign, as well as hosting a online panel discussion on ‘Why Understanding the Pay Gap is Key to Gender Equality at Work‘.
