Archaeology scores ‘well’ in gender pay report
At midnight on Wednesday the deadline past for organisations with more than 250 employees to submit reports on how they are paying male and female employees. Due to size, not many archaeological companies were required to submit data, but those that did, our largest employers, show that our sector may be performing better than most. You can see the results here. While women in archaeology are still paid less than men by up to 7%, and there is still a problem with retaining women into the most senior positions, these are far better results than the majority of UK organisations. So, more to do, but headed in the right direction.
