St James’s Place to host second ‘Mind the Gap’ event


St James’s Place is to hold the firm’s second annual ‘Mind the Gap’ event, celebrating women in business, on 11 November 2014, hosted by Baroness Patience Wheatcroft.

The event will show case how a career in financial services with St James’s Place can overcome institutional barriers and the work life balance faced by so many professional women.
The Academy currently has a gender split of 77 per cent men vs. 23 per cent women, double the current national average for female financial advisers in the industry.
The Academy is not only addressing the gender earnings gap but is wanting to add a greater gender balance to the firm while giving women from a variety of backgrounds the chance to run their own business.
Adrian Batchelor, Academy director at St. James’s Place says: “More than 40 years after the Equal Pay Act outlawed less favourable pay and conditions in the workplace, there are still vast differences in earning levels particularly hitting women.
”We believe women and men should be treated as equals and at St. James’s Place there is no gender income gap. Through the St. James’s Place Community we are able to support women and encourage them in to the financial services industry.”
