Register for the BCEC | WGEA Gender Equity Insights 2022 release

Launch of BCEC | WGEA Gender Equity Insights 2022

How does employee location affect the gender pay gap?

Date: Thursday 20 October, 2022

Time: 2pm – 3.30pm AEDT 

Platform: Microsoft Teams


WGEA Director, Mary Wooldridge, BCEC Director Alan Duncan and BCEC research fellow Silvia Salazar

Using WGEA's new location data for the first time, the BCEC | WGEA Gender Equity Insights 2022 report will break down the gender pay gap by state and territory, metropolitan and regional location. 

BCEC Director Professor Alan Duncan and BCEC Research Fellow Dr Silvia Salazar will present the report with WGEA director Mary Wooldridge and a panel of experts at a special online event on Thursday 20 October 2022. 

The report will reveal how workplace policies related to flexible working, sexual harassment, carer’s support and parental leave, and family and domestic violence differ across locations and how that impacts the gender pay gap. 

It will also include a special feature on the care sector, focussing on changes to employment and pay over time.  

The panel will ask how employers and policy-makers can use this analysis to shift policies around location and what more needs to be done to support women in regional and rural Australia. 

The online event is free, but registrations are essential. Don't miss this important discussion.
