Gender equality reporting

The Government has launched its new framework for voluntary equality reporting, which is aimed at improving transparency on workplace gender equality issues in the private and voluntary sector.


The reporting framework has been developed by the Government Equalities Office and the guidance for employers by ACAS. It gives a step-by-step approach for employers to identify the barriers facing their female employees, take action to address the issues identified, and report publicly on their progress.


Research suggest that companies with more women on their boards out-perform their rivals, with a 42% higher return in sales, 66% higher return on invested capital and 53% higher return on equity.


Gender equality reporting is just one of a series of actions the government is taking to promote equality in the workplace, along with introducing flexible parental leave, and extending the right to request flexible working.


The government is also working to implement the recommendations from the Lord Davies report into women on boards. Business engagement is building, with a number of FTSE 100 companies now having published their own aspirational targets for female representation on their boards.
