The fourth in-person session of the APPG on Modernising Employment will focus on the challenges women face in the workplace, aiming to spotlight the barriers which women face both obtaining work and throughout employment.

Women continue to face more barriers during the hiring process and whilst at work than men. To coincide with International Women’s Day (March 8th) this APPG will explore the key issues and barriers facing women at work. Hearing from senior professionals, research bodies, and campaigners this APPG session will focus on what more can be done to help reduce the barriers facing women. Chaired by Dame Maria Millar MP, formerly a Shadow Minister for Education, a Shadow Minister for Family Welfare, and a Shadow Minister for Families, Dame Maria has also been Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Disabled People.
