My doctoral research, funded by Leeds Doctoral College, aims to understand the Gender Pay Gap through a framework of Hegemonic Masculinity. As an undergraduate, I graduated with first-class honours in Business and Management at the University of Lincoln. Following this, I completed my Masters with Distinction in Organisational Behaviour at the University of Leeds.

The gender pay gap represents multiple intertwined factors in the long history of gender inequality within organisations that is the most challenging to resolve. Despite closing the gender pay gap being a large aspiration in Britain, progress remains slow. Globally, the World Economic Forum estimates it will take 2020 years to eliminate the gender pay gap if current rates are sustained. Through a framework of Hegemonic Masculinity, my research aims to understand the role of gender as a sociological driver of the gender pay gap, deconstructing assumptions of normalities within organisations rooted within masculine norms. Rather than understanding how female careers differ from an assumed normality, it will attempt to deconstruct masculinity within organisations that support the careers of men whilst restricting those of women.
