At Foster + Partners, we continue to pay men and women equally for doing equivalent jobs across the practice. We believe in creating an inclusive working environment for all, which is based on merit and encourages our talented team to produce their best work. We continue to try to ensure that our policies and practices are fair, including reviewing our pay decisions each year as part of our annual performance, pay and bonus review.
We are pleased to report that our median pay gap reduced from 10.5% to 9.8% which compares favourably with the industry average of 23.6%. The main reason for the gap remains with us having more men, with longer service, in senior higher-paid roles within the practice.
At Foster + Partners we are encouraging more of our women into senior roles to improve diversity at leader level, this is supported by our leadership development and mentoring programme. We actively participate in the ‘Women in Architecture Forum’ and ‘Move the Dial’. During 2018, a further 4 women became Senior Partners.
