    • Between 2017 when it was first reported and 2018, the median gender pay gap in the UK closed from 9.7% to 9.6%. At that rate, for it to disappear altogether would take close to a century. We don't know the rate of change in ethnicity pay gaps because the government hasn't decided whether to force companies to publish them, but the raw figures are shocking. Black male graduates earn on average £3.90 per hour (17%) less than their white counterparts, and black female graduates £1.62 less (9%). The Resolution Foundation think tank estimates that BAME workers in the UK are missing out on more than £3bn a year in wages. All the warm words we've heard from companies about the benefits of a diverse workforce don't seem to be moving the dial quickly on equal pay for women and people from ethnic minorities. What would it take?

      What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

      A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

      Breakfast from 7.45am, starts promptly at 8.00am. 

      If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing

      We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.

      Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
