20 June 2018 - 18:00 pm - 20:00 pm

Room K-1.56, King's College London, Strand, London, WC2R 2LS

History and Policy’s Trade Union and Employment Forum is holding a seminar at King's College London featuring:

Helen Glew, Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Westminster, who will explain the history of Equal Pay in Britain,

and

Sue Coe, Employment Head at the Equality and Human Rights Commission, who will analyse the results from the gender pay reports from organisations with over 250 employees.

Helen and Sue’s presentations will be followed by questions and discussion.  The event will end no later than 8pm.
