According to the ONS, the #GenderPayGap has continued to fall this year and is now at a record low. Despite this, '#EqualPayDay 2018’ has remained at 10th November - the same date as each of the past two years. That’s the first clue there's something fishy here... (1/5)
This is because, instead of comparing median wages (the number in the middle), the Fawcett Society uses the mean (the average of all the data). This has the effect of giving more weight to the incomes of a relatively small number of high earners at the top of companies... (2/5).
That might be OK if you want to focus (say) on CEO salaries and the underrepresention of women on boards. But it is unrepresentative of the rest of the workforce, where the #GenderPayGap has already narrowed significantly, especially for women under 39 (3/5)

#GenderPayGap To men in top positions. Just say no.
If you see a woman in your organisation falling into a role that you know is beneath her capabilities... Just say no.
If you let the most competent and innovative people in your company spend their time organising your personal calendar or making the **** tea ... it's a poor use of resources and will hold your company back.

My second briefing on the #genderpaygap for @iealondon is out today. Download for free here: iea.org.uk/publications/t…

Summary: The government’s new pay gap reporting measures fail to provide any meaningful insight into equal or fair pay for men and women in the workplace.
Not only are the measurements useless; they are also problematic. Incentives created include hiring fewer women into junior or lower paid roles – regardless of their qualifications – to achieve the closest calculation a company can get to a 0% #paygap. iea.org.uk/publications/t…
On the one semi-informative #paygap measurement (proportion of men and women getting a bonus payment), our calculation of FTSE 100 companies to report so far shows 36 companies gave bonuses to a higher percentage of their female staff, v 31 for male staff. iea.org.uk/publications/t…

Q: If the expert panel cannot reach agreement, what do employers understand will be the fallback position on the valuation?

A: The valuation is the responsibility of the USS Trustee (h/t @JosephineCumbo) 1/
The USS trustee board 'delegates day to day responsibility for the mgmt of the scheme to the group executive' (h/t @CathyJenkins101). The group executive comprises the following uss.co.uk/how-uss-is-run… 2/ screen shot of web link showing list of names in group executive

Good morning (again). I am calmer though the rage remains unabated. Let’s talk about coping with white supremacy+gender bias as a WoC, constant undermining of those of us tagged as ‘high achievers’ and consequent imposter syndrome. Thread 👇🏽
I am not going to repeat the TONS of data pointing to the ways women of colour are marginalised and excluded.

Go google for yourself!

These are givens so am not going to pander so don’t @ me with ypur whitesplaining and mansplaining
There are specific forms particular to publishing and higher ed, the two UK industries I know best.

And if you missed the appalling, shameful results of the report on #GenderPayGap in publishing, I suggest you go look it up
