EVENT OVERVIEW

This will be the final event in CEDA WA's 2013 Women in Leadership series and will discuss the future for gender equity in Western Australia.

WA requires a fundamental shift in thinking and action to lift our national standing in the gender equity landscape. Figures causing concern include:

  • WA's gender pay gap is 26.4 per cent, which is 8.5 per cent above the average pay gap for all other states (17.5 per cent);
  • Women hold only 27 (3.5 per cent) of the 772 directorships in WA based ASX 500 companies;
  • Women hold only 5.1 per cent of executive positions in WA based ASX 500 companies (average across other states is 10.9 per cent);
  • Females in senior executive roles in WA public authorities has only increased by six per cent since 2003 (from 20 to 26 per cent); and
  • Female representation on WA Government boards has only increased by seven per cent since 2003 (from 28 to 35 per cent)

In light of these statistics, it is clear that organisational and cultural values in WA require sweeping transformation. Given the state's current economic strength, now is the time to invest in change.

Join our leading ambassadors as we discuss the way forward for gender equity in WA.
