All charities should have to report ethnicity and disability pay gaps, says Sense CEO

The boss of a deafblindness charity has argued that every charity should be required to disclose disability and ethnic minority pay gap data. Speaking to Civil Society News, Sense’s chief executive officer
Richard Kramer said that equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) must be put at the heart of everything the charity does. His comments came after Sense recently published additional pay gap figures for the
first time, revealing an ethnicity pay gap of 2.5% – slightly higher than England and Wales’s 2.3% average – and a disability pay gap of 0%. Kramer said: “I think every charity should report on disability pay
gap and ethnic minority pay gap, it should be mandatory for employers.
