Women and the Economy – Government Action Plan

In June 2013, the Women’s Business Council published its report to Government. The Government has now published a document – Women and the Economy – Government Action Plan – which sets out how the Government will take forward the report’s findings and recommendations through a number of actions including:

  • Improved guidance on careers which will include raising aspirations and challenging stereotypes.
  • Help for parents to ensure their children make well-informed career and subject choices.
  • Support for those with caring responsibilities to stay in work or to set up their own small business.
  • A new business champion for older workers.
