Research

Revealing and highlighting the experiences of women working in higher education

We take a look at the experiences of UK HE parents and carers

This research focused on cohabiting parent couples, because data on ways in which unpaid labour is split between partners is scarcely available, yet influences career progression significantly. We focused on professional services because they have been largely ignored in sector studies on the impact of the pandemic to date, but represent a significant proportion of the workforce. We aim to bring a complementary perspective to what is happening in our sector.

Sharing the Caring final report

Our Sharing the Caring survey garnered over 1,000 responses, taking a snapshot of gender equality in the home during lockdown. We’re now able to share our final report with you.
