Resources

The Agency uses the data that it collects to produce informative resources for the public. The aim of these resources is to provide an indicative measure of the status of gender equality within Australian workplaces.

In addition, the Agency works closely with research partners, researchers and analysts to interpret and analyse the data, forming the foundation for our educational resources on gender equality in the workplace.

 

 

The Agency regularly produces practical tools and guides that can help you implement gender equality strategies in your own workplace.

The Agency produces a range of research papers and fact sheets, that draw on both the data and academic research to investigate both the causes and impacts of gender inequality.

The Agency showcases what real people and organisations are doing to improve gender equality in their own workplaces across Australia.

The Agency has developed an interactive data visualisation resource, which allows users to investigate the entire WGEA dataset. Users can compare data across industries and even organisations.

Health crises can exacerbate existing gender inequalities. As the global health pandemic caused by COVID-19 is ongoing, the impacts and effects are still being assessed and understood. However, preliminary research and emerging data show that women are likely to be affected in particular ways by this global pandemic.
