Penrose Care M.D. participates in UKCES Gender Equality Roundtable

Belsize Village, London – Earlier today Penrose Care’s managing director, Robert Stephenson-Padron, participated in the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) Gender Equality Roundtable panel to help inform the commission on strategies to improve gender equality in the workplace.

Mr. Stephenson-Padron focused on promoting the voluntary adoption of the Living Wage among British businesses as since many low wage jobs are disproportionally staffed by women, Living Wage implementation would have disproportionally positive impact on women.

The panel consisted of 22 people with 4 men, including Mr. Stephenson-Padron and was led by Gail Cartmail, Assistant General Secretary (AGS), Unite the Union.
