Income Inequality in the Knowledge Quarter

According to the latest ONS Household Finances Survey, the gap between the richest in society and the rest of the population has widened over the last 10 years.

Islington has the 4th highest levels of income inequality in London, and Camden is one of ten boroughs with the largest pay disparities – shockingly, both boroughs have more than 1 in 3 children living in poverty (according to the most recent Trust For London Data). Across all UK regions, the ethnicity pay gap was largest in London at 23.8% (ONS) and female employees were paid on average 16% less per hour than men in 2021 (London.Gov datastore).

For this special conference legacy event, a panel of economists and policy experts will discuss the causes and impacts of pay and income inequality on KQ organisations and the area they call home.

So what steps can organisations take to tackle inequality within their own organisations? And how will these actions impact inequality across our area and beyond?

 

This is a KQ conference legacy event, brought to you in partnership with British Land.
