Workplace Gender Equality Agency reporting
The Workplace Gender Equality Agency is an Australian Government statutory agency that promotes and improves workplace gender equality and administers the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Act).
The main goals of the Act are to:
- Promote and improve workplace gender equality, including equal remuneration
- Promote consultation between employers and employees about workplace gender equality
- Recognise women’s disadvantage in the workplace and help employers remove barriers
- Encourage employers to end gender discrimination
- Boost Australian business productivity and competitiveness by advancing workplace gender equality.
Significant progress has been made in recent decades in Australia towards these goals, and many other countries worldwide, however there is still a gender gap predominantly with earnings, career advancements and retirement/superannuation savings. As a relevant reporting employer Icon Group reports on Gender Equality each year for our business entities. As a group, we are committed to striving for workplace gender equality ensuring that our employees are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of their gender.
These reports are provided below for the 2018-2019 reporting year.
