New gender equality report highlights Management School progress

The cover of the Lancaster University Management School Gender Equality Report 2023.

Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) has produced its first Gender Equality Report – monitoring progress towards achieving gender equality within the School.

LUMS researchers engaged in the Horizon2020-funded TARGETED-MPI project collaborated with the School’s Athena Swan and EDI team to develop the report.

The international TARGETED-MPI project aims to advance gender equality in Business and Management Schools through the implementation and monitoring of Gender Equality Plans. Project partners include Athens University of Economics and Business, American University of Beirut, Stockholm School of Economics and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

The LUMS Gender Equality Report has two versions. A full report brings together detailed data gathered from a range of organisational databases. The short highlight version provides a focus on academic staff and draws on data in four key priority areas to align with the University’s goal to address the gender pay gap. The four areas of pay and staff profile, staff recruitment, academic staff workload, and academic staff promotions, enable us to identify key patterns that are indicative of both areas of improvement and areas for further work.

These reports provide the basis for ongoing work to progress gender equality at LUMS and offer a platform for the further development of EDI data to shape future planning and initiatives.

The highlight version of the 2023 LUMS Gender Equality Report is available online here: LUMS Gender Equality Report
