Parental Parity- An International Convo

Shared Parental Leave

"According to research conducted by the law firm EMW, the uptake of shared parental leave (SPL) in the UK last year was “exceptionally low” with only 2% of eligible couples utilizing SPL, despite the scheme being introduced six years ago." highlights The Equal Group

Is policy change needed to increase the participation in shared parental leave?

Today, there is merit to normalizing men’s participation in childcare - namely it impacts gender equality in the workplace. The Equal Group is raising awareness of the rights and support all parents are entitled to. Equally important is the role of employers, who can champion parity by creating strong parental leave policies that support equality in the workplace and at home.

The Equal Group will host a webinar on the topic of Parental Parity, to discuss:

  • Gender expectations in the workplace.

  • Inequalities between paternity and maternity leaves

  • Shared Parental Leave: reform or replace it?

  • What Leaders can learn from Europe's childcare and parental leave policies.
