The gender pay gap has lifelong implications for women. In the UK, women on average have saved less than half of what their male counterparts have, when you exclude property, according to research from AJ Bell Money Matters. It’s a disparity that Baroness Helena Morrissey just can’t abide. That’s why she’s spent much of her career working toward solutions.
She’s the founding ambassador of AJ Bell’s Money Matters campaign, which aims to close the gender investment gap by empowering more women to engage with their money. Helena is also founder of the 30% Club, a global campaign that’s pushing for greater gender balance in boardrooms and across senior management ranks. She’s also the mother of nine children. And she recently visited the Finimize Podcast studio to speak with our own Michelle Sims.
They talked about the latest gender pay gap figures, as well as the many other obstacles women encounter in their careers. Plus, they explored those key moments in life when women’s finances are most likely to go off the rails – and the things women can do to help keep them firmly on track.
