CMI: Lower levels of pay for women 'can't be justified'

Figures out today show female managers in Wales are earning almost £4,000 less than their male counterparts.

The Chartered Management Institute also says more needs to be done to 'tackle gender bias' in pay policies.

Lower levels of pay for women managers cannot be justified, yet our extensive data shows the pay gap remains for too many women in Wales.

Women and men should be paid on the basis of their performance in their particular roles, but this is clearly not yet the case for far too many.

We have to stamp out cultures that excuse this as the result of time out for motherhood and tackle gender bias in pay policies that put too much emphasis on time served.
