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.

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. 

 

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.

 

This section contains all submissions made by the Agency into commission inquiries and reviews. Ranging from submissions on women's retirement and economic security, to the gender pay gap, parental leave and more.  

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.

Australian workplaces have embraced flexibility like never before. In fact, according to the results from the 2021 WGEA employer census, four in five workplaces now have a formal flexible work policy or strategy.

The COVID pandemic disrupted the way we work and has illustrated that traditional ways of working, which placed great value on presenteeism, are now firmly in the past

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.
