To mark this year’s Equal Pay Day on 28 August 2020, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) has calculated the date of each Australian state and territory’s Equal Pay Day.

Is your organisation leading the way in workplace gender equality? Or have you recently developed a successful program, initiative, policy or strategy that has made a difference to your organisation? If so, we’d love to hear from you. 

New research by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) and Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre (BCEC) offers definitive proof that gender equity drives better performance, greater productivity and greater profitability

What will the future of work look like? As the world embraces advances in technology, we stand to benefit from workplaces that can remove barriers that prohibited many from participating in the labour force, increase workplace flexibility and improve productivity and innovation.

Research released by the Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre (BCEC) and the Agency reveals a strong causal relationship between an increase in the number of women in key decision-making positions and subsequent improvements in company performance.

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.

In the lead-up to the announcement of the 2020 Queen’s Birthday Order of Australia awards, community movement Honour a Woman and the Workplace Gender Equality Agency are encouraging all state and territory governments to develop and embed gender equality-focused nomination processes for the Australian Honours to ensure women receive due recognition for their essential work.

You may have noticed that the Reporting section of the Agency’s website has a new look! We’ve transformed all the print reporting guides into the ‘Guide to reporting’, your one-stop-shop for guidance on the reporting process.
