Statement by Mary Wooldridge, Director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency
We welcome the recommendations from the Review of the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012.
These recommendations draw from leading practice around the world about how to improve gender equality in workplaces.
The review has taken into account the views of a range of stakeholders, including WGEA, and, pleasingly, it has considered the Agency’s evidence-based submission on what should change to enhance Australia’s national reporting framework.
The implementation of these recommendations will accelerate positive change towards gender equality, improve the reporting experience for businesses, enhance insights from our already world-leading dataset, and deepen WGEA’s capacity to work closely with employers to support and advance their efforts.
We look forward to supporting the implementation of these recommendations, which will result in Australia having one of the strongest approaches in the world to ensure women and men are equally represented, valued and rewarded wherever they work.
