Queen Mary is committed to reduce our gender pay gap and we have detailed existing, and proposed initiatives that will help us achieve this aim. We also have plans to conduct further research and reporting to understand better how we can equalise the proportions and diversity of male and female staff at every level, and the pay and bonuses they are awarded throughout their careers. This will be an evolving process and we will report on an annual basis to map our progress, and keep staff up to date with individual initiatives and activities throughout the year.
We are proud to be the first higher education institution in the UK to pay the London Living Wage. Our institution is also part of the Athena SWAN Charter, which at Queen Mary, does not just address barriers to progression that affect women, but also recognises that individuals have identities shaped by several different factors and encourages the consideration of the intersection of gender and other factors wherever possible.
