Publish Parental Leave

Publish Parental leave campaign

We're calling for large employers to publish their parental leave policies for all to see.

Parental leave policies could easily be added to gender pay gap reporting. It's a small, cost-free change that could be a powerful incentive for employers to develop better policies – as well as a great way of celebrating those who do. In our survey, 91% of respondents supported the proposal.

We'd love you to support this campaign too. Please follow us on Twitter for updates.
