Equal Pay Day 2017: 4 September

18 Aug 2017 11:34 AM | Jean Murray (Administrator)

Good news! The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) announced today that the gender pay gap has reduced from 16.2% in 2016 to 15.3% in 2017.  This means Equal Pay Day will this year fall on Monday 4 September, marking the additional time from the end of the past financial year that women must work in order to earn the same yearly salary as men.

BPW Australia's Equal Pay Day Campaign has kicked off, with members around the country working to mark Equal Pay Day with local events and publicity.
