Research.

There are many reasons why the gender pay gap still persists and with the research strand of the project we were able to undertake four pieces of work to examine this.
This research has a valuable role to play in helping to unlock some of the reasons behind the gender pay gap and develop case studies and data related to Wales.

Evolve.

Helping women directly was a key part of the project however Agile Nation went much further by ensuring there was also a focus on providing workplaces with a programme of support.
This gave businesses the opportunity to develop their understanding of the importance of Equality and Diversity at work.

Fair Foundations.

To help ensure all children have the opportunity to explore, learn and play in gender-aware environments was at the core of Agile Nation’s Fair Foundations programme.
This highly focused aspect of the project worked with schools to create a strategic approach to promoting gender equality and gave every adult who works in the school, including parents, the opportunity to learn more about challenging gender stereotypes and their effect on aspirations and future career choice.
