Total gender balance at UiA, divided into the defined positions:
UiA must practise equal pay for equal work.
• The average salary for women compared to men is 92.9% at UiA overall, which is 0.3 percentage points lower than in 2021.
• In general, we find that women have slightly lower wages in most categories.
• An important reason for the overall result is the number of male employees within the position category Professor & docent (70% men), although within this group the pay is quite similar across genders (98.3%).
Women's share of men's salary:
UiA must have at least 40 per cent of both men and women in all management teams, including at faculty level.
All study programmes must have at least 30 per cent female and male students. Both women and men must be represented in boards, councils and commissions.
• There are still large variations between the study programs when it comes to gender distribution. In total, there are more female students (59%) at UiA. It is only at the Faculty of Technology and Science that we have a preponderance of male students (69%), where this proportion increased by 3 percentage points from 2021.
• A total of 40% of the programs have less than 25% of the underrepresented gender among the students.
• In 2022, the student figures show that 66 study programs have less than 25% male students. 16 study programs have less than 25% female students, which are stable figures compared to 2021.
Students and gender balance:
UiA must be an open and diverse working environment where employees with a different origin, background or level of functionality feel they belong, are meaningful members of the community and have the possibility to influence the working environment.
Students at UiA, independent of their origin, background and functional ability, have appropriate and equal academic development opportunities during their studies. There is a culture for systematic and fair admission of new students at UiA.
UiA must be an open and diverse university, where students and employees with different sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression feel welcome. Openness, knowledge and inclusion of LGBTIQ people characterise UiA.
All employees must behave according to the sexual etiquette and be aware of UiA’s zero-tolerance to bullying and harassment.
• The units have reported a total of eight cases relating to bullying and harassment, as well as one case of sexual harassment, all of which have been dealt with according to internal routines.
• Separate ethical guidelines for guidance at UiA have been implemented. They are made available to both supervisors and students at UiA and clearly highlight our zero tolerance.
• The student representative talks about his role and about "Speak up" in the training program for student union representatives. This is also covered in the subject ORG123, where the Student Representative and Director of Education give a lecture.
