Previous Gender Equality Analysis

The University has been conducting and publishing regular Equal Pay Reviews since 2008, which has enabled us to;

  • measure gender pay equality;
  • act as a catalyst for action; and
  • develop new initiatives to elicit change.

It should be noted that the methodology differs from the Gender Pay Gap Report given that it was introduced prior to the mandatory requirements. However, these reviews have been useful and have highlighted that our gender pay gap has continued to reduce year-on-year, but that progress must be accelerated. Analysis by pay grade has shown much smaller gender pay gaps than the overall figure and in some pay grades the pay gap is in favour of women. This demonstrates that our overall gender pay gap is driven by fewer women in senior roles and is an area that we are addressing through further action, as summarised here.
