Event overview

CEDA is pleased to welcome the Workplace Gender Equality Agency’s Director, Libby Lyons, to the CEDA platform to present the new Australian Gender Equality Scorecard. The WGEA’s data shows where employers are taking action, the industries and occupations that have the biggest pay gaps, and the changing landscape of the workforce.

Last year’s report showed small steps in the right direction, but with much work to be done to progress workplace equality. To find out more about the rate of progress and the workplace equality strategies that are working, join CEDA and the WGEA for this important address.
