This report provides a summary of the ‘Equal Pay: Where Next?’ conference held on 28th May 2010 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act 1970. It captures the debate that took place during the discussion workshops and final panel session.

Four think pieces were produced to stimulate discussion and proposals for change:

  • Making the business case for equal pay.
  • How structures and organisation of workplaces play a part in the equal pay debate.
  • The adequacy or inadequacy of the legislative framework underpinning equal pay.
  • Attitudes and culture surrounding equal pay.

The structure of this report mirrors the main themes of the think pieces, presenting the key arguments from each think piece before highlighting workshop recommendations and debate from the final panel session on each theme. The report concludes with a section detailing the main recommendations for taking forward the agenda on equal pay.
