Close the Gap in Midlothian

It was a pleasure to meet with Ruth and Kelsey from Close the Gap, hearing more about their work with organisations of all types and sizes to encourage and enable action to address the causes of women’s inequality at work.

I heard more about their project Equally Safe at Work, which Close the Gap are currently piloting with seven local authorities including Midlothian Council.

The accreditation programme aims to support employers to improve their employment practices to advance gender equality at work, and prevent violence against women.
