ZeroGPG project starts!

The gender pay gap (GPG) is the difference between men’s and women’s pay, based on the average difference in gross hourly earnings of all employees. Despite decades of anti-discrimination laws and changes in the policies of companies and businesses worldwide, women are still not earning as much as men do in the workplace. The GPG is a complex problem calling for multi-level solutions.

Major factors leading to GPG are: Discrimination in the workplace, workplace practices and pay systems, undervaluation of women’s work and skills, few women in senior and leadership positions, gender roles and traditions and the need to balance work and family responsibilities.

The zeroGPG project addresses the GPG issue, using a trans-national approach with different stakeholder types, such as NGOs, women counseling centers and research institutions that work together to contribute to tackle pay inequalities.

ZeroGPG is being implemented by 6 beneficiaries from 5 EU countries. The partners have a long experience in the sector of equality, business-related psychology and human rights. The action stakeholders include the business associations, decision makers and NGOs. All of them will be actively involved during the project implementation.

The project’s activities were launched at the partnership kick-off meeting, held in Rome, Italy on 26th and 27th of January, 2015. During the meeting the partners discussed the expected results and the next activities to be implemented during the lifespan of the project.
