It's time to stop short-changing women



Gender Pay Equity - How do we make it happen

Adelaide, SA - 13 September 2017

Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, BPW (Business and Professional Women) Adelaide, and the Centre for Workplace Excellence, UniSA Business School, marking Equal Pay Day

Equal Pay Day will be marked on 13 September with an expert panel presenting the facts about gender pay inequity in Australia. 

Equal Pay Day is calculated annually to reflect the gender pay gap – the extra days the average woman needs to work to earn the equivalent income the average man earns by 30 June each year.

Australia’s national gender pay gap is calculated annually by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, with Equal Pay Day to be held on Monday 4 September 2017. The gap was 16% in 2016 and hovered between 15% and 19% for the past two decades.

Given we have legislation, policies and court decisions that are meant to prevent discrimination against working women, excellent data from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, and the highest educational attainment levels for women globally, why is gender pay equity so hard to achieve? And what is holding us back? Our panel will present the data, explore the reasons and discuss where we can go from here. Join us for this discussion panel here.
