A Lasting Change

Welcome to #aLastingChange, a useful resource for ideas, collaboration, information, legal insight and opinions on how we can create a long-lasting improvement in women’s experience of work and overall make the working environment a better place for everyone.

2017 was the year women’s workplace issues dominated the public conversation. The media did a fantastic job shining a light on issues including unequal pay, sexual harassment and under-representation of women in senior roles. Responsibility for dealing with these – and other – problems lies with all of us.  We will support any organisation that wants to learn more about how it can deal with these issues.

The content will change and grow as we all contribute best practice in our respective organisations or highlight articles in the wider media.  There are links to other campaigns and materials created by industry bodies which you might find useful.  Lewis Silkin does not endorse any third party content or any views expressed by other organisations.

We explain why we are sponsoring this initiative

Fresh out of my first year at university and applying for a summer job at a pub, I was slightly taken aback when the interviewer asked whether I had children, in a tone that implied “no” was the right answer… Back then, with no children, I simply answered the question - but it made me wonder.
