Podcast: The gender pay gap in the financial and legal services

Centre for Employment Relations, Innovation and Change

Jennifer Tomlinson and Jack Daly

Professor Jennifer Tomlinson speaks to Dr Jack Daly about his research that explores the role of men and masculinity in the gender pay gap, focusing on the legal and financial professions. They discuss how the gender pay gap can’t solely be closed by providing equal opportunities for women when careers remain structured in a way that disproportionately favours male behaviours and traits.
