Publications

Gender equality is the result of a number of complex issues. The Agency produces publications that draw on both the data and academic research to investigate both the causes and impacts of gender inequality. The evidence-based publications listed below offer deeper insights into topics such as negotiation in the workplace, parental leave, women's economic security in retirement, unpaid care work, mentoring and sponsorship and targets and quotas.

Although Australian women enrol in and complete higher education and enter the labour market at a higher proportion than men, they are still substantially less likely to work full-time across all age groups and less likely to reach the highest earning levels. 

The Wages and Ages: Mapping the Gender Pay Gap by Age data series is the first time WGEA data has been broken down by age to track these patterns. 

 

Australia's gender equality scorecard is a report released each year by the Agency. The report showcases a sample of the key findings from that year's reporting period and includes information on gender segregation, gender pay gaps, women in leadership and much more.

Using the latest data from the WGEA dataset and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), this fact sheet details the gender pay gap by states and territories, industries, occupations, sectors and age.

In 2020 the Gari Yala project documented the workplace experiences and recommendations of over 1,000 Aboriginal and Torres-Strait Islander workers. This follow-up report took these results and analysed them through a gendered lens, to better understand the experience of Indigenous women and men at work.

In partnership with the Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre (BCEC), the Agency uncovers new insights about gender pay gaps in Australian workplaces. Every year since 2016, BCEC has produced a report analysing the Agency’s datasets to explore trends and identify policies and practices that work to address gender inequality in the workplace.
