No. 1 Magazine - - #CLOSETHEGAPSCOTLAND -

Close the Gap is a part­ner­ship project work­ing with em­ploy­ers, trade unions and pol­i­cy­mak­ers on women’s in­equal­ity in the labour mar­ket. Started in 2001, its part­ners in­clude the Scot­tish Govern­ment, Scot­tish En­ter­prise, High­lands and Is­lands En­ter­prise, Skills De­vel­op­ment Scot­land, the Equal­ity and Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion and Scot­tish Trades Union Congress. It pro­vides guid­ance and sup­port to in­di­vid­ual em­ploy­ers – for ex­am­ple in un­der­tak­ing an equal pay re­view – and to larger groups of em­ploy­ers in the pub­lic sec­tor. It also works to in­flu­ence govern­ment pol­icy and pro­vides schools ed­u­ca­tion on gen­der equal­ity. Close the Gap’s web­site of­fers a wealth of in­for­ma­tion for women about their rights in the work­place. For more in­for­ma­tion see clos­ethe­gap.org.uk
