New data collected from Australian employers on the status of women and men in the workplace will look at rates of promotion by gender as well as the impact of having children on workforce participation.

Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre, in collaboration with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, has today released a report demonstrating that amongst top tier managers in Australian organisations, men are paid on average $100,000 per year more than women.

As she finishes her five-and-a-half-year tenure this week, we catch up with Libby Lyons, outgoing Director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), about perspective, ambition and making change.
