Our Launch took place on Monday 31st July for our report on the Ethnicity Motherhood Pay Penalty supported by #EthnicityPayGap Campaign.

Becoming a mother impacts a woman’s income for the rest of her life. For Black and minoritised women, this motherhood pay penalty is compounded by existing ethnicity pay gaps and the intersection of gender-based and racial inequalities at work.

We presented new analysis of Labour Force Survey data spanning almost 30 years, alongside a review of key literature to understand the barriers faced by Black and minoritised mothers at work.

The event included an insightful round-table panel discussion with plenty of audience questions.

The report was presented by Freelance Researcher Julie Rose and the event was chaired by Alesha De Freitas, Head of Policy, Research and Advocacy for Fawcett Society 

With the following line-up of expert panelists:

  • Dianne Greyson, Founder of #EthnicityPayGap Campaign 
  • Melissa Blissett, Senior Consultant in Pay Gap Analytics, Barnett Waddingham
  • Shabna Begum, Interim Co-CEO, Runnymede Trust 
  • Lester Holloway, Editor at The Voice Media group
