Based on principles agreed with businesses, unions and the voluntary sector, this sets out a voluntary framework for gender equality reporting available to all organisations, especially those with 150 or more employees.

The framework includes reporting of statistics such as:

  • company statistics for gender representation in different roles and salary levels
  • promotion and flexible working rates
  • gender distribution across the organisation’s occupational groups
  • pay and reward gaps between men and women

Find out about the Think, Act, Report campaign which helps companies think about gender equality in their workforces and how your company can sign up.
