    Gender pay gap: Consultation with businesses in Victoria

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    The recent data from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) has highlighted the wide range of action and success to reduce the gender pay gap among Australian businesses. The gender pay gap for businesses ranges from -5 per cent to over 30 per cent in some cases. The Victorian Government has commissioned research on the gender pay gap and what businesses can do to address it.

    We want to understand how gender equality has been integrated into business strategy and values, what initiatives work and don’t work, and what are the barriers and enablers to sustained action. This is an opportunity for you to share your business’ practical experiences of developing and implementing change to address the gender pay gap. We want to hear from a wide range of businesses including those that have just begun to take action, and those that have been working on it for many years.  You will be able to learn from your peers about what they have been doing and workshop what government can do to practically support businesses to reduce the gender pay gap.
