Gender Pay Gap 2020

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the government announced in March 2020 a suspension in the enforcement of reporting on gender pay gaps in 2020, and as a result many organisations took the decision not to publish figures this year.  

The University of Leeds has taken the decision to publish our figures and remains committed to actively addressing gender imbalance and demonstrating our on-going focus on fair and transparent reward, promotion and recruitment policies and practices. However, in light of resource constraints arising from the needs to focus significant University resource on Covid-19 Pandemic related matters, we will not be producing a full GP report to accompany this years’ figures.
