Initiatives helping to address our Gender Pay Gap

Here are some examples of action we have taken and continue to take to address the Gender Pay Gap through promoting gender equality and increasing family friendly support as well as female focused training, development, more transparent promotion processes and networking opportunities.

We continue to review activities around reducing all pay gaps and endeavour to work with minority ethnic employee groups through feedback and active support.

Promoting gender equality

In 2009 the University joined the Athena Swan Charter and has been actively addressing gender equality for staff and students. We were awarded Athena Swan Silver status in 2016 and again in 2022. Currently all 12 of our Schools and Institutes hold their own awards.

Family-friendly support

The University offer a wide range of family-friendly-related policies and avenues of support.

Transparent promotion processes

For the past 9 years we have worked to ensure that all staff have a clearer understanding of the academic promotions process. This has included developing case studies, running promotion workshops, and training staff on Unconscious Bias. 

University staff can access case studies linked to career paths and information on promotion, annual review and role profiles.

Training, development and networking

Since 2014 the University has supported 180+ women to complete the AdvanceHE Aurora Leadership Programme, and over 140 women to complete the internal Springboard Development Programme.

The University has continued to develop career support including the Mentoring NetworkLeadership and Management Programmes, and Career Coaching.

The University continues to support the Female Early Career Researcher Network (FECRN), a Parents Network, a Careers Network, Liverpool Women in Science & Engineering Society (LivWiSE), a Women in Physics Group, and a Women in Maths Group, and a Menopause Support Group. These networks endeavour to help support the career development and wellbeing of staff, as well as to celebrate the successes of female students, academics and researchers.
