Gender Pay Gap – what is it, how is it calculated, why should I care and what needs to happen to close the gap?

“My experience in the DE&I space spans over the last decade and covers both the public and most recently, the private sector. I’ve dedicated my career my to exploring, unpicking, and improving the ways in which employers create the kind of environment that helps their people to thrive, reach self-actualisation, and do their best work.
I’m a first-time working mum to a two-year-old, and a step mum to two brilliant pre- teen daughters. Through my own lived experience and position as an active ally to many causes, I’ve always been drawn to supporting marginalised groups by amplifying their voices and truly understanding the societal barriers that they face. Knowing that there are 3 growing humans in my care who will at some point experience the workplace themselves, it grows ever more important for me to ensure that the future of the workplace is one where they feel recognised for their achievements, safe, and able to speak up.
Getting comfortable with the uncomfortable is a concept that all employers must foster and make part of their culture. There is much work to be done, and alongside my peers, I embrace the challenge!”
Sharna Matson Knight
I have a background in HR, Learning & Development, and worked in Energy Operations within Cadent. I am passionate about everyone having opportunities, whether that’s in work, society or their personal lives, to have confidence, succeed and be the most authentic version of themselves,
I joined WUN as an Advocate back in 2020, and I took a role managing the Mentoring programme and starting up the Podcast.
I originally joined as I was inspired by two of the Founders that I had met. I loved hearing about how these successful and passionate women were aspiring to develop and encourage women in our sector, with the aim to build long and successful careers. Everything that WUN stands for really resonates with me. I am grateful that I can give back to a sector that I have enjoyed and succeeded in for the last 10 years.
I enjoy helping women to believe in themselves through building confidence, empowering them, and helping them thrive. I am excited to re-join WUN after having my daughter and continue to contribute to a network that inspires the current, and future generations of women.
