There is a powerful economic case for the work of the Women’s Business Council. Despite great progress in recent decades, women are still more likely than men to be in low-paying jobs and are under-represented in senior positions. By equalising the economic participation rates of men and women, we could add more than 10% to the size of the economy by 2030. The council is applying an evidenced-based approach to advise ministers on how to maximise women’s contribution to our future economic growth. Evidence papers are published on GOV.UK.
