Equal pay in the ETH Domain: tested and approved

March 17, 2022,

The ETH Board had the six institutions of the ETH Domain check whether women and men are paid the same for the same work.

The results are encouraging: nowhere was the difference greater than 2 %. Up to 5 % is considered acceptable or within the range of uncertainty. While at the major schools ETH Zurich and EPFL, as well as at the three other research institutes PSI, EMPA and WSL, men earn slightly more overall, the figure at Eawag is in the range of +1.4 % in favour of women.
