Women in Leadership: workplace inequality

Aug 5
CEDA's latest Women in Leadership event will examine the benefits of applying business practices on gender inequity.

Her Excellency Unni Klovstad, Norwegian Ambassador to Australia

Event overview

Australia has made significant progress towards gender equality and inclusiveness in recent decades. However, women continue to earn less than men and are less likely to advance their careers as far as men.

The business case for equality is strong. Enhancing female workplace participation and closing the pay gap between men and women is a significant national productivity imperative. Studies show that more diverse workplaces are more productive, maintain higher moral, and are more likely to retain key staff.

CEDA's NSW Women in Leadership event will examine the benefits of applying business practices on gender inequity, specifically:

  • Setting clear performance indicators for organisations to be measured against;
  • Identifying gender inequity through data collection;
  • The business case of gender equality within organisations;
  • Effective leadership to encourage others to embrace diversity
  • Strategies employed in other jurisdictions to enhance workplace diversity and inclusion?
