The Commission on a Gender-Equal Economy is a new 18-month project from the WBG which will work to proactively develop alternative economic policies to promote gender equality in the UK.

On 5th June between 2-3pm the Women’s Budget Group and the Women and Equalities Committee will be holding a drop-in session hosted by Chair and Vice Chair Rt Hon Maria Miller and Jess Phillips MP to promote this work in the House of Commons.

This is an opportunity to come and learn more about the Commission from the Commissioners themselves as well as make your contribution to our visioning exercise. We’ll be asking people to write down what a gender-equal economy means to them, taking photographs and celebrating these ideas on social media.

The Commission is an 18 month expert-led investigation into visionary policies to achieve a gender-equal economy. The Commission is made up of a group of individuals working across sectors including representatives from non-profits, academics and analysts. We are very excited to have representatives from the CBI, the TUC and the Fawcett Society on board – a full list of Commissioners can be found here.

We hope you will be able to join us, even for a short while, on 5th June to learn more and make your contribution to this exciting work. We will announce the exact Committee Room the week of the event.
