Gender Strategy

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.

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!

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) has today released Australia’s most comprehensive Gender Equality Strategy Toolkit ('GES Toolkit').

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.

The latest WGEA data confirms that when Australian employers take action- the gender pay gap declines. Five years of WGEA data shows that year-on-year employer action to address pay equity has increased and year-on-year the gender pay gap has decreased.

Today, alongside the launch of WGEA’s fifth year of data, we have also launched a brand new way for you to explore WGEA’s archives of individual employers’ data. The WGEA Data Explorer has been updated and is now a one-stop shop for all public data collected by the Agency.

The Gender Equality Strategy Toolkit equips you with the skills and resources to start and/or continue the change process towards greater gender equality in your organisation.

We often hear about the gender pay gap. But is it really as simple as two people working side by side being paid differently?
