Target setting toolkit


Gender diversity has been linked to improved organisational performance.

This guide will assist your organisation in setting realistic targets to improve the gender diversity of your workforce.

If your organisation has already achieved a desired gender balance, this guide may help in monitoring and maintaining that balance. Similar to setting financial or other operational targets within an organisation, establishing realistic gender targets based on rigorous analysis and baseline data will significantly increase your chances of achieving the target.

This guide includes step-by-step instructions for the Workplace Gender Equality Agency’s target setting calculator, available to download below.

In setting gender targets, it is recommended that your organisation considers a range of gender related initiatives to achieve improvements in gender composition.
