New JNCHES Gender Pay Working Group 2018 

The New JNCHES settlement for the 2017-18 negotiating round included a commitment to undertake a joint survey of HE institutions on gender pay gap action planning and discussion, involving the Equality Challenge Unit (Advance HE), to examine ways that this joint work could examine intersectionality with other protected characteristics. 

The Gender Pay Working Group agreed the terms of reference (TOR) at its first meeting on 26 April 2018. The group also agreed the timeframe for completion of the work and the questions for the survey of HE institutions about their gender pay gap action planning. The key output from the joint work will be a joint report covering findings, patterns and problems from the two surveys on gender pay gap action planning in the sector.
