Closing the Pay Gaps: Gender, Ethnicity, Disability, LGBTQUA+

Pay gaps are the difference in hourly pay between the total population of one group in the workforce and the total population of another in the workforce. For example, the gender pay gap is the difference between the total population of men and women in the workforce.

In our annual report, we provide information on pay gaps at the University of Warwick for the snapshot date of 31 March 2021. In line with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017, we report the gender pay gap, but we also want to go further than this. Although there are no formal requirements to do so, the last two year’s we have published our ethnicity and disability pay gaps, and in 2021 have also now added our LGBTQUIA+ pay gap.

We analyse this data and look at the context for the figures, and we set out our continued commitment to improve pay gaps at the University, through steps we’ve already put in place and the further actions we have identified.

"We are very pleased to see that our pay gap figures have improved, and the representation of women, staff who disclose Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic ethnicity, and staff who share a disability have all improved at the senior levels of our staff community. We know however, that our progress is slow. Sustained improvement will require continued fundamental changes"

In this annual report, we reflect and report on our progress over the last year to close pay gaps at the University of Warwick for the snapshot date of 31 March 2021. We show where we’re succeeding, and where we still need to do more work, and we outline what we plan to do as our next steps on our journey towards full equality.
