London South Bank University halves its gender pay gap
06 March 2018
London South Bank University (LSBU) has halved the difference in pay between its male and female staff to an average of 6.7 per cent (mean) from 13.25 per cent in 2009, significantly out-performing the higher education sector as a whole.
LSBU currently has a gender-balanced workforce: 52 per cent of staff and 49 per cent of the University's professoriate are women. The University also has an equal proportion of female staff (49 per cent women to 51 per cent men) in the upper quartile salary band.
These results stem from analysis completed at LSBU between 2007-2011, when an extensive job evaluation and salary restructure was carried out to reassess remuneration and create parity across all roles. The re-evaluation resulted in a salary upgrade for lower paid manual and administrative staff and the addition of pay increases.
