The WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation is a voluntary program that recognises organisations' active commitment to achieving workplace gender equality.
WGEA accepts application questionnaires from new applicants and renewals each year. The EOCGE citation is awarded for two years.
The citation, which commenced in 2014, is strategically aligned with the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. It recognises that gender equality is a baseline feature of well-managed and leading organisations. According to recent research, the EOCGE citation is driving improved gender equality outcomes in Australian workplaces.
WEGA reviews the citation every five years to ensure it continues to reflect best practice and remains relevant and accessible to employers. The latest review is due in the first half of 2023.
