Responding to Theresa May's announcement of a new social justice body, Dr Wanda Wyporska, Executive Director of The Equality Trust said:
Politics and Government
A day before the UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights presents the critical findings from his UK country visit to the Human Rights Council, Dr Wanda Wyporska, Executive Director of The Equality Trust will be part of his conversation in Geneva, with experts from UK domestic civil society and international NGOs to reflect on the current state and scale of poverty in the UK and what can be done to address the human rights violations that are both the cause as well as the consequence of poverty.
Commenting on the BEIS announcement on corporate governance and pay ratios, Dr Wanda Wyporska, Executive Director of The Equality Trust said:
“Legislation forcing companies to publish their pay ratios is long overdue, given that a FTSE 100 CEO now earns an average (median) annual pay of £3.45 million , per year, a staggering 242 times more than that of a minimum wage worker.
We are delighted to present our new Local Manifesto (which is an updated and distillation of the key asks from our Make My Council Fair campaign pack) which will allow people to work with their local council or elected Mayor to tackle inequality and poverty where they live.
We are delighted to present our new National Manifesto which is an updated version of the well-received manifesto that we published before the 2017 General Election. It contains practical, achievable policies and we urge people to lobby their MPs to advocate for these policies.
