Abstract

Organisations are subject to increasing pressures to address occupational gender segregation. The UK’s Equality Act 2010, for example, supersedes the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 and a number of other anti-discrimination acts. The Act places a positive duty on all public sector organisations to tackle gender inequality (Public Sector Equality Duty, PSED). This paper therefore considers the challenges of tackling occupational gender segregation within a group of public sector organisations, namely UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
