To: Queen's Vice-Chancellor / Senate

Close the 15% Gender Pay Gap at Queen's University Belfast

Queen's University Belfast must take immediate action to address their shameful 15% gender pay gap.

Why is this important?

Queen's is now a leading UK university - but for all the wrong reasons.

Figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) show that in 2017 - QUB's female professors earn an average of almost almost 15% less than their male colleagues - an average gap totalling £11,798.

To put this into some perspective - this is the highest pay gap among the 24 leading UK universities, known as the Russell Group.

It's entirely unacceptable that in 2017 a leading publicly funded university pays men 15% more than women for the same job.

Join with Uplift today and sign our petition to demand the Vice-Chancellor and Senate of Queen's University take meaningful action today to address and reverse this shameful pay gap.
