From the shop floor to the glass ceiling

Legislative change in the UK has resulted in compulsory reporting of pay for male and female employees of larger corporations and has seen the gender pay gap narrow to 9.1% in April 2017, the lowest level since 1997. However, it is clear that more progress needs to be made to address inequality across the sexes, both within pharmacy and wider society. I explore the significance of gender inequality in pharmacy and its potential impact on the careers of female pharmacists in this feature for the Pharmaceutical Journal.

The Pharmaceutical Journal is holding a Twitter chat on Tuesday 10 April at 8pm to provide a platform for pharmacy professionals to discuss the issue of gender inequality in pharmacy. I’ll be on the panel, so come and join the debate with @PJOnline_News and use the tag #PJMindTheGap
