UWindsor, WUFA collaborate to reduce pay gap for women senior academics and librarians

December 8, 2021
The University of Windsor has announced that it has enacted pay parity measures that will ensure that women academics and librarians are paid the same amount as their counterparts. UWindsor administration and the Windsor University Faculty Association (WUFA) collaborated to form a task force that found a pay gap for senior librarians and full professors. The gap was not observed in associate and assistant professorships or lower-ranked librarian positions. An algorithm was developed to reduce the pay gap for senior academics and librarians. “We are hopeful that this acknowledgement and our efforts to right this historic wrong will demonstrate to women who hold senior academic positions that the University of Windsor values their contributions and is committed to equitable practices going forward,” said UWindsor President Rob Gordon.
