Meg meets some ‘Inspiring Women’

Friday, October 12, 2007

Heeley MP Meg Munn today met with representatives of a new Sheffield business group, Inspiring Women. The new group aims to increase the number of businesswomen in the city, and increase their visibility. Susan Livisage, Chair of Inspiring Women, and Helen Rana, Policy Manager for Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, discussed with Meg the aims and plans of the new group.

 

Meg is keen to support the group and its aspirations. As the former Minister for Women and Equality she knows only too well the issues around women in the world of work.    

 

Meg said:

 

‘I am delighted to support Inspiring Women and am very pleased that Sheffield is taking a lead in this area. Despite the Equal Pay Act of 30 years ago women still only get 87% of men’s pay. This gap has shrunk over the last 10 years, but we need to speed up the recognition that women in the workforce are worth the same as men when doing the same work.

 

There is a strong relationship between companies having a diverse board of directors for instance and market capitalisation 18 of the top 20 companies by market capitalisation have women directors, but only 8 of the bottom 20 firms do so.

 

I welcome this new group and wish them every success.’
