Research conducted by the #EthnicityPayGap campaign has revealed that Black (of African and/or Caribbean heritage) and Brown (Black and mixed heritage) women could consequently miss out on £105,000 to £350,000 of earnings across a working lifetime spanning an average of 35 years.
In the report, the campaign maintains that wage differences based on race and gender can be complex in origin and identifies the following factors as potential critical influences:
● Household structure and health status
● Access to spheres of influence
● Opportunities for professional development
