UCD Gender Pay Gap Report 2022

This is the first time that UCD has published its Gender Pay Gap (GPG) report following the introduction of the Gender Pay Gap Information Act 2021 and Regulations published in May and June of 2022. This report contains University College Dublin’s (UCD) 2022 Gender Pay Gap data and identifies reasons for gaps and a range of actions to address these gaps.

Over the past four years, there has been a downward trend in the gender pay gap from 13.45% mean in 2018 to 10.77% and 15.12% median to 10.14% during the same period for core employees (i.e. excluding hourly paid workers). The current overall gender pay gap for UCD (including hourly paid workers) is 7.71% Mean and 7.66% Median. An analysis of the data both including and excluding hourly paid workers is provided throughout the report as the inclusion of hourly paid workers can result in data fluctuations and may present a less accurate picture of the university’s overall gender pay gap. Whilst the University has made progress over recent years, we are not complacent and acknowledge there is still much to do in order to achieve gender equality and close our gender pay gap. We are committed to continuing to implement and monitor actions to reduce the gap between the pay of men and women.
