Australia’s gender equality scorecard – a mixed picture

22 Nov 2017 2:09 PM | Jean Murray (Administrator)

The scorecard presents an informative snapshot of the key findings from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency’s 2016-17 gender equality data, and trends over a 4 year period.

The WGEA notes a big jump in employer action on gender equality – making managers accountable for gender equality outcomes, promoting women into manager roles and encouraging flexible work arrangements – but the gender pay gap persists across every occupational category with men on average earning $26k a year more than women.

There has been no improvement in the proportion of women on company boards and management roles continue to be heavily dominated by men with women holding just 16.5% of CEO roles and 29.7% of key management personnel roles.
