The Gender Pay Gap in the Legal, Financial and Professional Sectors- Call for Research Participants
The Univserty of Conducting doctoral research into the gender pay gap within the legal sector and the wider professional services. The research hopes to understand the complexities of gender pay gaps focussing on sociological factors that may impede women’s career development compared to their male counterparts.
If you are interested in taking part here is the information below:
The legal obligation to report gender pay gaps has highlighted positive and negative aspects of gender equality within the professional sectors where reducing, if not eliminating, the gender pay gap remains a large aspiration. This research hopes to understand those existing policies that attempt to address the gender pay gap and any problems organisations have in their successful implementation. Furthermore, it hopes to explore any social aspects of work that may act as barriers to career progression for the increasing number of women into a sector once traditionally seen as “men’s work”.
What is required from me?
Interviews will be conducted through video-communication (Zoom, Skype, etc.) or by phone call. Interviews can be arranged at a time that suits you and outside of traditional working hours if required. There is no strict structure to the interview, but it hopes to understand career histories, the nature of socialisation within your industry and, if applicable, strategies to address the gender pay gap.
