AXA signs up to British ‘Charter for Women’

Equal Pay CampaignAXA has become the first financial services company in the UK to sign up to the ‘Amicus Charter for Women’. Amicus, the British finance sector union, is campaigning to end the discrimination and consequent unequal pay hitting women. Although women make up the majority of staff working in the British financial services (55%), the finance sector has the largest pay gap of any sector. Women on average earn 43% less than men.

Amicus has drawn up a charter, which it expects all leading financial services providers to sign up to. The charter will commit employers to work with Amicus to tackle the root causes of pay inequality. Amicus believes that ending inequality in women’s pay and career progression is good for business and that employers can not afford to overlook the contribution that women can make if they are allowed to break through the glass ceiling. Pay inequality is also a family issue because it impacts on family incomes.
