Workplace inequality comes in many forms
The second annual gender pay gap figures are beginning to trickle in and, for those reporting so far, it seems that not much has changed. The figures suggest women are still paid less overall.
This result isn’t necessarily surprising and, for all the reasons I discussed last year, I’m still fairly unconcerned about it.
As a snapshot of where the profession currently sits, the Arb register is creeping towards a 70:30 split (26% female in 2016; 27% female in 2017). And the RIBA 2017 Chartered Practices report notes that 37% of people employed by chartered practices are women.
