A change in the law in the UK requires architecture firms to reveal gender pay gaps in staff salaries. Zaha Hadid Architects, now lead by Patrik Schumacher, shows that women are paid 19.6 percent less than men. The figure was calculated by comparing the median salaries of the men in the firm and the median salaries of the women. The firm claims that this disparity is caused by having more men in higher paid senior positions.
Architects that employ 250 people are required to publish salary cap figures each year and Dezeen has created a gender pay cap calculator for firms to use that are not required to make the figures public as part of an initiative to expose the gender pay gap in architecture firms.
