The Guardian is reporting that top universities are reporting big disparity between male and female employees’ earnings.
Oxbridge colleges and universities across England are displaying huge variations in the way they reward female members of staff, according to data released to the government as part of the gender pay gap audit.
The University of Cambridge is the latest university to submit its records, revealing a 15% gap in median hourly pay between men and women on the university’s staff – including non-academic employees.
Cambridge’s top 25% pay bracket contains approximately two men for every woman. But the bottom pay bracket shows a reversal, with approximately two women for each man among the lowest 25% of earners.
Prof Stephen Toope, Cambridge’s vice-chancellor, said the university’s progress in closing the gender pay gap was slower than he would have liked.
