The gender pay gap update

The gender pay gap still exists – and it gets in the way of abundant leadership.

Abundant leadership is important to us at the Forton Group. Whether that’s an abundance of women, of the inter-generational workforce or diversity of culture, colour and styles. We love it.  Because it creates innovation, better leadership and creativity. professional women still experience the gender pay gap

So, whilst we’re not happy about the subject, we are happy to share some updated information that may support your career development.

I was fortunate when I got my first mortgage.  The CEO of the (then) ‘Building Society’ announced on national tv that he’d give a mortgage to anyone – assuming they could pay it back.

My husband didn’t need to sign for it (yep, that was a thing back then…). I also had allies who helped me think through the consequences of any decisions I made.

In hindsight, I also believe that I was at the right age of brain development to make such a big decision.  The research in neuroscience talks about us developing our financial decision-making abilities in our late 20s.

But still, accessing finance can be hard for women, even today.  So I’m happy to share this guide that empowers single women to rise above financial inequality and build their credit in order to obtain a mortgage.
