"One of the key battlegrounds on this front is the recruitment process - as encouraging women into traditionally male roles is hard without first addressing the gender segregation inherent in many recruitment processes".

The mean gap is calculated by adding all the salaries of an employer by gender and then dividing that sum by the number of salaries.

It's the day when a woman's salary catches up to what the average man earned in the previous calendar year. In April 2017, the United Kingdom mandated that organisations of 250 or more publish data about their gender pay gaps within 12 months. The report says this is because mothers are more likely to have taken a break in employment, which affects their pay, though the perception that women with children choose to work less is often false.
