McMaster to raise pay of all female faculty

McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, plans to raise the pay of all female faculty staff by about 3,500 Canadian dollars to eliminate the disparity between the salaries of men and women at the institution.

A two-year analysis of salaries at the university found that female faculty members earned, on average, $3,515 less than their male counterparts in 2012 and 2013—even after controlling for seniority, tenure, faculty and age. A comprehensive report on the analysis will be published in the near future.

The pay adjustment will be applied equally to all female faculty members on 1 July. The university will periodically analyse faculty pay to ensure any future pay disparities due to gender can be corrected.
