Statutory Gender Pay Gap Report 2018

Category: Women
The BBC has published figures showing that the gender pay gap has been reduced by nearly a fifth over the past year.

The updated figures have been published as the BBC sets out its commitment to leading the way on gender equality in a review looking at the culture and progression of women in the corporation.

  • The median gap has fallen from 9.3% to 7.6% following concerted action to close the BBC’s gender pay gap in 2020. 7.1% of the remaining gap is driven by structural issues with too few women in senior leadership roles and more women than men in the lowest quartile of the workforce.
  • The mean pay gap is also down, from 10.7% to 8.4%.
