The Male Champions of Change (MCC) have released a report detailing women’s representation in leadership within their organisations.
The report shows how the MCCs are positioned against their aspiration to increase the number of women in leadership positions in Australia, and uses performance benchmarks from WGEA reporting data and other leading indicators.
Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick, founder of the MCCs, says the report provides the group with an annual opportunity to share learnings and compare MCC organisations to industry metrics.
“The Workplace Gender Equality Agency benchmark reports represent a terrific opportunity for all leaders to consider whether they are reaching their aspirations to leverage all of Australia’s talent,” says Ms Broderick.
Ms Broderick says that while there are some significant accomplishments and examples in the report, there are also many opportunities for improvement.
“The men are not Champions because they are perfect role models, but rather because they are committed to taking action to increase the representation of women in leadership.”
“The Progress Report demonstrates their willingness to stand behind their numbers and show they are constantly working to identify what else can be done to drive improvement,” says Ms Broderick.
Progress Report 2014 is available for download from the Male Champions of Change website.
