Shorter working weeks for gender equity

Hands up if you’re a working mom that reduced your work time for less pay but with the same responsibilities!

If we want to close the gender pay gap, we have to start looking at ways to even the playing field.

The #4DayWeek offers a real chance to move the needle on gender equality at work and at home.

We know that women are much more likely to opt for reduced-hour or part-time roles – moving to a shorter working week in a structured, systemic way across the organization can take a giant step towards closing the #genderpaygap and achieving true #genderequality.

It’s not only working parents that struggle to juggle caring responsibilities and work commitments. More and more people these days are caring for elderly parents or relatives, with many families having more complex care needs.

We at the Work Time Reduction Center of Excellence can help you start the conversation with your boss or board.
