As part of RIBA's commitment to support a diverse and
inclusive profession, they have published guidance for architecture
practices on closing the gender pay gap.
This guidance document provides practical steps for Chartered Practices, providing recommended measures/actions practices can take to monitor, evaluate and address the issues underlying gender inequality in business and a pledge for RIBA members to sign up.
As part of the ongoing campaign to address gender inequality in
practice and understand the underlying causes that exist, the RIBA
invited Chartered Practices, large and small, to provide details of
initiatives they have implemented as best practice examples for
practices to learn from and look at how you could
implement. In one of the case studies, Fiona Welch, architect at Collective Architecture, speaks about the importance of a consistent interview approach and the benefits of empployee-ownership in gender pay gap transparency.
