Inclusive Cambridge: promoting gender equality


As we have stated in previous reports, gender imbalances across the University underlie our gender pay gap.  Women continue to be under-represented in more senior and higher paid roles and over-represented in more junior and lower paid roles.

Across the University Group, both the mean and the median gender pay gaps are shrinking, although the rate of shrinkage has slowed.  These results emphasise the need to reinvigorate our work in this area.

We remain committed to identifying and addressing these imbalances.  This report provides an update on progress made since the 2019 report, as well as outlining new initiatives designed to erode our gender pay gap from April 2020.

Notwithstanding the challenges we face, we continue to work hard towards gender equality.
