#NoSmallChange - Closing the Gender Pay Gap in the Media and in the Arts

Join us for a discussion on the gender pay gap in the arts and in the media. At the event, we will also be launching our recent submission to the Government on the Gender Pay Gap. 

Speakers will include:

  • Emma O'Kelly, Chair of the National Union of Journalists Dublin Broadcasting Branch
  • Sarah Durcan, Board Member of the Abbey Theatre
  • Ivana Bacik, Senator 
  • Orla O'Connor, Director, NWCI 
  • Ellen O'Malley Dunlop, Chairperson, NWCI

The event will be chaired by Martina Fitzgerald, RTE Political Correspondent 

As we saw from salary figures released by RTÉ and BBC earlier this year, there is a very clear and significant gender pay gap in broadcasting. Arts is one of the four lowest paid sectors in Ireland, and a recent survey of a large number of organisations receiving Arts Council funding found recognition and resourcing was much lower for women in the arts than it was for men.

It is important for women to be equally recognised and resourced in these sectors. NWCI would greatly value the contribution of those who work in the media and the arts, to our discussion. We hope you will be able to join us to discuss how to close the gender pay gap in the media and the arts.
