This year in Australia, the gender pay gap has increased to 14.2%. That’s a difference of $261.50 every week.
One of the reasons we started this podcast was to try and improve gender wealth equality. This year, #EqualPayDay is on the 31st of August, and we want to take this opportunity to talk about the gender pay gap. To help us understand it, and what it means, we are chatting with the CEO and founder of PepTalkHer, the incredible Meggie Palmer. PepTalkHer was founded with the mission to close the gender pay gap by empowering women and educating some of the biggest companies in the world about the benefits of inclusivity. From why the the gap exists, to what you can do today to start shifting the needle - this chat is both educational and inspirational, and has a take away for everyone.
