Pay and Employment Equity Review Report and Action Plan Academic jobs With the exception of tutor positions, a high proportion of the comments from academics at all levels were in the 300 category; that is that gender equity is not demonstrated in pay and rewards at Massey University (ranging from 36% - 49%). Of the 790 comments from these academics, 347 or 44% were coded to this level. Clearly the weight of responses from academics is a lack of confidence in the pay and rewards system at Massey University. The table below shows a higher proportion of comments from male professors than female professors about how gender equity is not demonstrated in pay and rewards at Massey University (37% and 30% respectively). At all other levels, this view was expressed by a higher proportion of female than male comments. At associate professor level, senior lecturer level, and senior tutor level the difference between men and women was marked (19% male and 65% female at associate professor level, and 22% male and 68% female at senior lecturer level), and 13% male and 49% female at senior tutor level). Q31: Responses by job title by gender - all comments and 300 comments by number & % Number of 300 comments by job (cf. % of comments coded to 300s as a all comments) % of all comments Male Female Total Male Female Total Professor 24 (65) 3 (10) 27 (75) 37% 30% 36% Associate Professor/Reader 7 (37) 33 (51) 40 (88) 19% 65% 45% Senior Lecturer/Senior 22% 68% 49% Research Officer 31 (140) 135 (200) 166 (340) Lecturer/Research Officer 19 (66) 71 (134) 90 (200) 29% 53% 45% Senior Tutor 2 (16) 18 (37) 20 (53) 13% 49% 38% Tutor 1 (14) 3 (20) 4 (34) 7% 15% 12% Total 84 (338) 263 (452) 347 (790) 25% 58% 44% General staff positions Around a third of all comments from general staff were coded to the 300 level category, that is that gender equity is not demonstrated in pay and rewards at Massey University. Consistent with academic staff, this view was expressed by a higher proportion of female than male comments for both librarian and administration services positions.
