Ep 97 - Closing the gender pay gap with Michelle Gyimah

Uncategorized Jun 05, 2022

Gender and ethnicity pay gaps are a very real issue in the UK and worldwide – so how do we change that? 

This week’s episode is part two of my interview Michelle Gyimah, the Director of Equality Pays, a gender and ethnicity equality consultancy dedicated to closing workplace pay gaps.

We discuss what organisations need to know about tackling the gender and ethnicity pay gaps and how they can take action to make the changes that are needed.

In part one, we talked about how to ask for a pay rise or negotiate a higher salary when you start a new role. You can listen to that episode here.



Michelle Gyimah is a passionate advocate for enabling women (and men) to progress in their careers in a way that suits their outside of work responsibilities and lifestyle choices. She does this by empowering workplaces to radically rethink how they can support their employees to thrive at work.

Michelle’s unique understanding of employee engagement, workplace challenges and personal experiences enables her to embed practical application into her consultancy.

She has over 8 years’ experience of working at the Equality and Human Rights Commission and holds a Masters in Human Rights from The University of Manchester.
