The persistence of the gender pay gap in the Australian labour market is perplexing. The past decades have seen some major advances for women in the workforce and intentional policy initiatives that have targeted a reduction of the pay gap between men and women, yet the pay gap remains.

Gender Equity Insights 2017: Inside Australia’s Gender Pay Gap is the second report in the series and extends and strengthens the evidence base around gender pay gaps and how these have changed over time across Australian workplaces.

Special investigations are included to provide additional insights and to highlight potential policy targets for governments and the business sector. The role of gender segregation within organisations is assessed along with pay differences between men and women engaged in graduate programs and how these pay gaps differ at the top and bottom of the wage distribution. The report also looks at the balance of women in top-tier management positions and how this impacts on the gender pay gap over time.

Please join us for breakfast with prominent government, industry and community leaders to discuss how best to address gender pay gaps in the Australian labour market.

The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre together with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency are delighted to announce the panel for the launch of the second report in the BCEC|WGEA Gender Equity series.

Join Andrew McMahon, Research and Analytics Executive Manager of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency; Diane Smith-Gander, Non-Executive Director of Wesfarmers; and Edgar Basto, Asset President, Iron Ore at BHP Billiton.
