This week's chat

December 11, 2015 Transcript of #CommsChat on women in comms

This week we were joined by Rachel Friendly, MD at Weber Shandwick, as we tried to understand the pay gap, why there is still gender inequality in comms and what the industry should do to tackle it. Read the highlights below:

  • @adamrubins in my experience I haven’t seen a gender pay gap. Our comps and bens looks at grade averages not gender averages
  • @KelYoung8 A1: CIPR stats show women in PR are paid on average £13,887 less with £8,483 of that unaccounted for by circumstantial factors
  • @Helenw7 @CommsChat does it come down to lack of confidence? Confidence to ask what colleagues earn&ask for what you’re worth. #commschat
  • @blowndes I’ve been lucky as I’ve worked for companies who’ve had family friendly policies with women in senior positions
  • @RachelFriendly Good point @blowndes as an industry we need to have family friendly flexibility for both men and women to create true equality
