Data crunch: Calculating, understanding and evaluating gender, ethnicity and intersectional pay gaps

Data crunch: Calculating, understanding and evaluating gender, ethnicity and intersectional pay gaps in your HEI will take place as an in-person event in central London on Tuesday 14 March 2023.

Workshop leader:

Becky Gregg, Research Analyst, UCEA

Target audience: 

Data Analysts, MI/MIS Analysts, Systems managers responsible for completing pay gaps data. This workshop may be of interest to diversity and inclusion colleagues as well as HR generalists.

Aims and objectives of this workshop: 

  • For participants to be able to calculate statutory gender pay gaps returns confidently.
  • To understand the similarities and differences in calculating pay gaps for other protected characteristics.
  • To interpret and benchmark statistics after calculation.

What participants will ‘take away’ after the workshop:

Participants will gain a good understanding of how to complete the UK government’s statutory gender pay gap return and the common pitfalls affecting HEIs. Only HEIs in England are required to complete this by law but HEIs in other nations may wish to report this voluntarily. Additionally, they will have explored how to extend the statutory requirements to consider pay gaps using an intersectional framework. Finally, they will be able to benchmark their HEI to the wider HE sector and also the wider economy and understand factors to consider when writing their supporting narratives for their submission and local communications.
