University explains gender pay gap success

A university with one of the lowest median gender pay gaps among institutions in England has revealed the factors behind its results.

According to government data, the University of West London reported that men had a median salary of 2.15 per cent higher than their female colleagues on average over the past two years. In 2018 it reduced its median pay gap to 1.6 per cent from a 2.7 per cent gap in 2017.

Speaking to HE, Neil Henderson, director of human resources and organisational development at the University of West London, explained that the small pay gap was due to equality, diversity and inclusion being seen as a priority by the university. “In the last few years we have introduced a new programme of training, redesigned our recruitment processes and transformed our approach to academic promotions so that equality, diversity and inclusion are embedded in everything we do,” he said.
