Data Launch

This sixth year of data collection has revealed a sharp increase in the number of Australian organisations supporting employees who are experiencing family or domestic violence.

Data released today shows a worrying decline in employer action on gender equality prior to the impact of COVID-19.

More Australian employers are taking action to promote gender equality in their organisations but the pace of change is modest and uneven according to data released today by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).

This year marks 50 years since the landmark 1969 equal pay decision that first saw Australian women win the right to be paid the same as men for doing the same work, or work of equal or comparable value. 

The availability of employer-funded paid parental leave has reached its highest level in the six-year dataset. This might be a cause for celebration if not for the fact that one in two workplaces provide no access to paid parental leave to their employees.

Australia's latest gender equality scorecard is out now and we want your help to spread the word. 

It is that time of year again when the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (‘WGEA’) is busily preparing to release the latest gender reporting data in November. We are travelling all around Australia again on a national roadshow to share with you all the findings from the 2018-19 dataset.
