Voices of Dissent: Are Chief Executives Overpaid?

Voices of Dissent: Are Chief Executives Overpaid?

The UK's top executive pay has soared from 40 times that of the average worker in the late 1990s, to over 150 times today. It's becoming increasingly difficult to claim that this economic model works for everyone. Little progress has been made in closing the yawning gap between rich and poor, and our economy is much less equal than that of other advanced European nations.

Deborah Hargreaves is a Trustee and Founding Director of the High Pay Centre, an independent non-party think tank established to monitor pay at the top of the income distribution and set out a road map towards better business and economic success. She'll talk about why our high-pay culture is so damaging and what can be done about it.

We’ll explore how to recognize such situations, and whether it’s possible to walk away knowing that in rejecting such reconciliation we’ve actually done the right thing.

Sunday Gathering: Mindful of Happiness

Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation. Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.

The theme of this week's Gathering is 'Mindful of Happiness'. We’ll explore the proven benefits of mindfulness: focusing on the present moment, our own thoughts and feelings, and the world around us.

Sunday Gathering: Happiness & Helping Others

Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation. Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.

Today's theme is 'Happiness & Helping Others'. In this challenging world, it sometimes seems that we need to choose between helping to address the world's problems or being happy. Wouldn't it be great if we didn't have to make that hard choice? Can we actually be happy, when facing suffering and injustice? Well, it seems that we CAN be happy AND help the world. We'll talk about how.
