Event overview

CEDA’s Women in Leadership series welcomes the Workplace Gender Equality Agency to present the findings of the 2016 Australian Gender Equality Scorecard.

The third annual scorecard represents comprehensive ‘time-series’ data on the status of gender equality in the Australian places. This important dataset covering 4 million employees provides a valuable evidence base for understanding gender issues at work – helping to articulate the challenges and track progress in achieving gender equality.

Join WGEA Director, Libby Lyons as she reveals progress and performance against key gender equality indicators. In addition to perspective from senior corporate leaders, this event will examine:

  • The most recent data set that maps gender equality in the Australian workplace;
  • The gender equality performance of NSW-based organisations compared to the national average;
  • Key findings related to the gender wage gap, the proportion of women in management position and best and worst-performing   industries;
  • Addressing the gender gap – proven strategies that promote flexibility, equality and opportunity; and
  • Promoting change – capitalising on the opportunity to prioritise workplace gender equality and build inclusive, successful businesses

Register your place at the final event of CEDA’s Women in Leadership series for 2016 and find out how your company measurers up to the WGEA scorecard.
