Closing the Gender Pay Gap

Posted on February 28, 2020

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.

The RIBA have also an opportunity to sign the pledge and read the further guidance.
