The gender pay gap is a systemic issue resulting from centuries of inequity and gender bias. More scientific organisations are enforcing equal pay policies but closing the gap is a slow process.
Ensuring equal pay for equivalent positions is one of the action points advocated in the ALBA Declaration on Equity and Inclusion. In this context, ALBA has gathered relevant resources on the gender pay gap in Academia.
In this article, you will find data on salary inequity in STEM; examples of best practices such as implementing a Salary Equity Study in your institutions; examples of policies to tackle this issue; and advice to negotiate salary and resources.
