BPW Australia congratulates the organisations that have received citations as Employer of Choice for Gender Equality in the 2014 inaugural awards. The citations extend the scope of the Employer of Choice citations awarded in 2014 by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency compared to citations awarded in previous years, and require successful organisations to have demonstrated significant initiative and commitment to achieving gender equity in the workplace. For the first time, the citation process has assessed remuneration data to compare women and men across all levels of organisations as well as the strategies reported by organisations in order to improve and sustain gender equity achievement.
WGEA Director Helen Conway said: “We know sustained and multi-faceted interventions are required to address the structural and cultural barriers that prevent women and men from equally participating at all levels of an organisation. This year’s citation holders have each demonstrated their commitment to maximising the full potential of their entire talent pool.”
