LSBU’s Gender Pay Gap falls 25% in a year

30 September 2021

New figures published by London South Bank University (LSBU) have shown the Gender Pay Gap has fallen by 25% in a year, from 5.1% in 2019 to 3.8% in 2020. LSBU’s Gender Pay Gap is far below the higher education sector average (15.5%) and UK industry average (15.9%).

LSBU is working hard to close the Gender Pay Gap by 2025 by:

  • Opening up new promotion routes for staff to develop and move roles.
  • Providing coaching, mentoring and sponsorship for LSBU staff.
  • Delivering inclusive recruitment at all levels of our organisation.

LSBU has a balanced workforce in terms of gender, 48% of our staff are female and 52% are male and recently appointed Tara Dean as Provost who joins the LSBU Executive which is made up of 5 women and 5 men. In November 2020 LSBU joined a small number of UK universities, businesses and charities to publish Ethnicity Pay Gap data.

Marcelle Moncrieffe-Johnson, LSBU Group Chief People Officer, said, “The 25% fall in the Gender Pay Gap last year at LSBU is welcome, but we know more work is needed to achieve our target to close the Gender Pay Gap by 2025. That’s why we have opened up new routes for our staff to develop and move roles and are providing coaching and mentoring for LSBU employees.

“Publishing our Gender Pay Gap data demonstrates LSBU’s commitment to having open conversations about gender and our work to deliver equality for all: everyone, everyday and everywhere.”
