Appendix 2: Relevant Institutional Information – Pay and Employment Equity Review Project Summary INTRODUCTION This paper reports on information that is already available in relation to pay and/or the employment experiences of women relative to men at Massey University, and summarises the key findings from this information. Some of the data sourced is specific to Massey University while other data relates to the tertiary sector as a whole or provides other contextual information. The paper is structured in three parts. The first section (which is available in this summary) lists the information sought and avenues explored, and where information is available and still relevant, the source is referenced. The second part of the report summarises the key findings/conclusions from the Massey University-specific information. The third part of the report summarises the key contextual information with which the PaEE review committee may need to be familiar in the course of the review.
