Key Developments (August 2020)

Join our live screening of The Divide

The Divide (2015) tells the real life story of seven unconnected individuals striving for a better life in the US and the UK- where the top 0.1% own as much wealth as the bottom 90%. By plotting these tales together, we uncover how every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor. For those of you who didn’t see this the first time round, the film is inspired by our co-founders’ critically acclaimed book, The Spirit Level.

The panel discussion following the screening will feature Professor Sir Andy Haines (Global Health Film Advisory Board), the film’s Director Katharine Round, Professor Richard Wilkinson and Dr Wanda Wyporska.

Landsec agrees to introduce gender pay gap reporting by grade

 

Last month, we asked Landsec to commit to three recommendations on equal pay. While the company asserted that it has a "low-risk approach to pay" (despite advertising jobs without a salary), Landsec agreed to undertake gender pay gap reporting by grade.

As the UK’s largest commercial property development and investment company, with just under 600 employees, this is a huge win for the #EqualPay50 campaign, giving hundreds of workers the data necessary to identify and address potential instances of unequal pay.

A massive thanks to our friends ShareAction for their support and advice on using AGM activism as a tool for transformative change, and to our activists Carl and Louise for their digital contributions!
