A note from the LMH Treasurer

Lady Margaret Hall was an employer with 256 full-pay relevant employees on 5 April 2020. At this date, Lady Margaret Hall had a Mean Gender Pay Gap of 13.2% and a Median Gender Pay Gap of 26.7%. 

i. Of the 64 employees in the lower quartile, 21 are male and 43 are female. This means 33% are male and 67% are female.

ii. Of the 64 employees in the lower middle quartile, 32 are male and 32 are female. This means 50% are male and 50% are female.

iii. Of the 64 employees in the upper middle quartile, 31 are male and 33 are female. This means 48% are male and 52% are female.

iv. Of the 64 employees in the upper quartile, 34 are male and 30 are female. This means 53% are male and 47% are female.

Lady Margaret Hall takes matters of equality seriously. The above figures have been reported to and discussed at the College’s Governing Body. It is noted that The 26.7% Median Gender Pay Gap arises from combining two different groups of employees who have very different salary distributions: academics and support staff. Males make up 55% of academics but only 39% of the support staff. When these distributions are disaggregated, the Median Gender Pay Gaps are reduced to 0% for academics and 4.4% for support staff. Similarly, the Mean Gender Pay Gaps are reduced to 2.5% for academics and negative 1.6% for support staff.

I am authorised as an appropriate person to make the above disclosure on behalf of the College. I confirm that these figures are accurate in all material respects.
