IRM responds to government gender pay gap legislation

Nicola Crawford CFIRM, Chair of the Institute of Risk Management says:

“In the name of equality we as an Institute wholeheartedly support the government’s move to require companies with more than 250 staff to report on the gender pay gap by 2018.

We support Virgin Money and Deloitte who have already published their figures and hope to see many more organisations following suit. Enterprise Risk Management is inherent in every organisation, in every sector globally, and people management and the associated risks are important to the success of any organisation.

As Chair of the Institute of Risk Management I am leading a series of thought leadership events and surveys on women in risk, the debate is starting on our LinkedIn group.

My goal is to promote diversity in risk management, to harvest the unique experiences, skills and perspectives that women can bring to optimize decisions and build positive risk cultures. We will achieve this by uniting and empowering women in risk through networking, discussing and sharing of experiences.”
