Helping women return to work

Wednesday November 4th, 2020

New measures targeting workplace inequality.

Further steps to tackle inequalities in the workplace and help women return to work following a career break have been announced by Fair Work Minister Jamie Hepburn.

A new Women Returners Programme – backed by £500,000 and following on from a 2018-19 pilot scheme – will fund projects that help to address gender inequality in the workplace and build on the Scottish Government’s commitment to reduce the gender pay gap.

A further £850,000 will be available through the Workplace Equality Fund to help organisations to develop more inclusive and diverse workplaces.
