"Think, Act, Report" is a voluntary, flexible framework of measures for British businesses, created by the UK government to address gender inequality in the workplace through heightened transparency. This is the programme's own first annual report, setting out the business case and statistics on the gender pay gap, outlining the degree of this programme's acceptance (10 percent of the workforce are now subscribed to it), and describing relevant legislation that has been passed or is pending.

Initiatives by companies in a range of sectors including banking, retail, technology, transport and telecommunications are presented as brief case studies. Annexes at the end of the paper list companies which have signed up to Think, Act, Report, and summarise the programme's transparency framework.
