We will be introducing regulations that require large employers to report on gender pay gaps and differential bonus payments. Alongside this, as part of the BIS Narrative Reporting Requirements, FTSE listed companies need to report on gender diversity at Board and senior management level.</p><p>These measures have proven to be effective as there are more women than ever on boards, and we are committed to continuing with them in order to see further progress.</p> more like this
