Women make up half of the nation’s workforce but earn only 77 per cent of men’s average full-time income, according to the latest gender equality scorecard, which will be launched by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) at the National Press Club today. 

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.
