Case study library supported by a donation from the Wainwright Trust

The Wainwright Trust was set up 30 years ago in the name of equal pay and opportunities pioneer David Wainwright. Following David’s tragically early death in 1987 the Wainwright Trust has raised money, commissioned and published research, funded and helped produce invaluable tools in the fight for equal pay and opportunities and held annual events to bring together and update people committed to and active in the area of equality at work.
