This toolkit helps organisations set and meet targets to increase gender diversity in the workplace. 

Women make up half of the nation’s workforce but earn only 77 per cent of men’s average full-time income, according to the latest gender equality scorecard, which will be launched by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) at the National Press Club today. 

A disparity in the way bonuses are allocated to women and men is a significant contributor to the gender pay gap, Australian and UK data shows. 

Infrastructure and property company John Holland recently conducted a pay gap analysis and discovered 15% of their female employees were being paid less than their male colleagues across the business.

Each year the Agency releases data provided by Australian employers, which paints a comprehensive picture of gender equality in Australian workplaces.

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.
