Linda Mason on tackling pay inequity.

New data from the forthcoming Parlour Census Report shows that pay gaps persist in architecture. There is good news – the gaps have reduced slightly, and the gap for people aged 25-29 has halved since the last Census. The shocking news is that new analysis shows that the the pay gap becomes a chasm when we take cultural background into account.

So, what can we do – as individuals, as practices and as a profession? The Champions of Change Architecture Group has developed a set of practical resources to support practices of all sizes to understand the pay gap and pay equity; to measure, analyse and assess the situation with their businesses and to establish clear and coherent systems to address the pay gap.

Find out more about the data and what it means and hear from two excellent studio managers about what can be done.
