For HR/diversity practitioners

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) announced today the list of 2020-22 WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation holders.

All organisations, regardless of size, benefit from a remuneration policy, whether remuneration is set by award, enterprise agreement or common law contract.

Achieving gender equality, including gender pay equity, is a process that takes time and conscious significant effort. This guide will help you diagnose the status of pay equity in your organisation, set goals, and take practical steps to improve pay equity as part of your gender equality strategy.

Awards and enterprise agreements are common methods of setting pay for organisations. Data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) confirms that gender pay gaps are less prevalent when pay is set by an award or collective agreement. 

Taking action to ensure equal remuneration between women and men is an important step for organisations to proactively manage any associated legal risks. Organisations are required by law to provide equal pay to employees who are performing work of equal or comparable value. 

Gender equitable procurement and supply chain strategies involve organisational procurement of goods and services, which are designed to improve gender equality objectives in either the procuring organisation or the supplying organisation.

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency has been featured in Apolitical's 'Gender Equality. 5 Days. 50 Ideas.'

This is an exciting initiative designed to deliver bite-sized and inspirational gender equality policy ideas to policymakers across the country.

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, tracks EOCGE organisations over time to pinpoint commonalities in their approach to workplace gender equality and identify what leading practice looks like.

Moving towards gender equality in an organisation involves a process of change. To assist organisations in this change-management project, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (‘WGEA’) launched a new and improved resource: the Gender Equality Strategy Toolkit (‘GES Toolkit’).

Is your workplace interested in hardwiring gender equality into its organisational DNA, but not sure how to get the ball rolling? Or does your workplace have gender equality initiatives in place, but there’s still room for improvement?

Well, we have just the thing you need!
