Invitation to participate in focus groups on gender, progression and promotion

last modified Jun 26, 2017 01:48 PM
The Gender Equality Steering Group would like to invite members of staff to a series of focus groups seeking to find out more about their experiences and perspectives of career promotion and progression within the University.

To inform the University’s investigation into what influences the gender pay gap, the Gender Equality Steering Group (GESG) are undertaking a series of focus groups to explore how promotion and progression are experienced and perceived by staff in all job types at the University of Cambridge.

Data indicates that an area of concern may be the lack of women in higher graded positions across all staff groups.

For staff in Academic roles they would in particular like to engage with staff who have either not been successful, or chosen not to apply, through the Senior Academic Promotion Scheme.

Your contribution will help to identify areas that could be improved, as well as to share examples of good practice.

This will be vital in planning for the future with the findings of these focus groups reported back to the GESG in Michaelmas term. 

The focus groups will be confidential and spaces are limited. The dates and locations of the focus groups are as follows:
