Breakthrough Skills Programme ™ for Women
Chartered Management Institute (CMI) recently published an analysis of the 2016 National Management Salary Survey. It revealed that men are 40% more likely than women to have been promoted into senior and higher paying management roles in the past year, with no progress made on reducing the 23% gender pay gap.

Fawcett, the UK’s leading charity campaigning for gender equality and women’s rights, pointed at four big causes of the gender pay gap:
Discrimination: It’s illegal, but some women are still paid less than men for the same work – this can happen when a man and a woman are doing exactly the same role and receiving different pay, or where work of equivalent value carried out by women is underpaid.
Unequal caring responsibilities: Women continue to play a greater role in caring for children, as well as for sick or elderly relatives. As a result more women work part time, and these jobs are typically lower paid with fewer progression opportunities.
A divided labour market: Women are still more likely to be in low paid and low skilled jobs, affecting labour market segregation. 80% of those working in the low paid care and leisure sector are women, while only 10% of those in the better paid skilled trades are women.
Men in the most senior roles: Men continue to make up the majority of those in the highest paid and most senior roles – for example, there are just five female Chief Executives in the FTSE 100.
