Gender Pay Gap Report 2022

Ollscoil na Gaillimhe - University of Galway's report on the Gender Pay Gap(GPG) 2022 sets out detailed data on the GPG and analyses the key issues which drive the pay gap. In addition, the report documents existing initiatives and further plans/actions to address the gap. Although the Gender Pay Gap Information Act came into effect in 2021, with the statutory reporting regulations published in 2022, Ollscoil na Gaillimhe - University of Galway has been undertaking an analysis of the GPG since 2019. Ollscoil na Gaillimhe - University of Galway is committed to the progression of gender equality and recognises that the GPG is a central aspect of our efforts to address the gendered nature of inequality for staff at the University. Accordingly, the University’s Strategic Plan 2020-2025 explicitly states that we are committed to significantly reducing the GPG and have embarked on a process of collecting this data since 2019.

The issue of gender equality matters to us and to our university community and we are committed to doing better. In this regard we also specifically acknowledge the ongoing work that is being undertaken by staff throughout the university to address gender inequality.
