WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality


Applications paused as WGEA conducts review of Employer of Choice Citation

WGEA has paused applications for the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation while we complete a review of the program.

As a result, WGEA will not accept new applications in 2024. Employers with a current citation will hold this for an additional year.

What does the review cover?

The Employer of Choice review will examine how:

  • the citation can better encourage employers to continually improve gender equality
  • to expand access while upholding the value for current citation-holders
  • to recognise employers that are achieving gender equality across the set measures
  • WGEA can support employers that are taking action on gender equality, but falling short on their outcomes.

When will WGEA complete the review?

WGEA will release the updated guidance about the new Employer of Choice program in late 2024. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us at eocge@wgea.gov.au.
