Employer of Choice for Gender Equality: leading practices in strategy, policy and implementation


This report, commissioned by the WGEA and written by Dr Terry Fitzsimmons and a team of researchers from the AIBE Centre for Gender Equality in the Workplace, analyses EOCGE organisations from 2014 to 2019 to pinpoint commonalities in their approach to workplace gender equality and identify what leading practice looks like.

Among other key findings, the report indicates that EOCGE citation holders are improving on key gender equality metrics at a faster rate than other employers in the Agency’s dataset.

EOCGE organisations have a faster reduction in their gender pay gap compared to other organisations, as well as a greater proportion of women in all levels of management and a higher representation of women on their boards.

This indicates that the EOCGE citation is driving improved gender equality outcomes in Australian workplaces.
