Cracked but not broken: The continued gender gap in senior administrative positions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Much has been written about the glass ceiling and pay differentials in higher and further education (HE, FE) for women academics (McTavish and Miller 2009, Rees 2007) but very little about discrepancies for women ‘professional managers’ within UK higher education. Professional managers as a term needs to be defined as universities call their generalist administrative/management staff by a variety of titles, eg academic‐related, professional services, support, administrators, managers etc. In this paper the term ‘professional manager’ is used as in Whitchurch (2007) to capture the professionalism of staff undertaking generalist roles, such as in student services or departmental/faculty management.
