Professor Tomlinson on the gender pay gap in the construction industry
On 31 August, Professor Jennifer Tomlinson was featured in an article published by the New Civil Engineer about the gender pay gap in the construction industry.
In the article titled ‘Innovative Thinker | Pay transparency key to closing gender pay gap says academic’ Professor Tomlinson says that the construction industry’s gender pay gap will not be bridged organically, and that firms should look outside the industry for solutions.
Contractor Ferrovial Construction is doing that as industry partner for a study being led by Tomlinson. It is funded by national research funding agency UK Research & Innovation and is examining ways to reduce gender and ethnic pay gaps in the foundations sector.
