Gender Equality Network: 'Glass walls' - Gender segregation & the pay gap

21 Aug 2017


At our August 2017 Gender Equality Network event, we explored the findings of the recent Senate Inquiry into gender segregation in the workplace and its impact on women's economic equality.

By international standards, Australia has a highly gender segregated workforce. The 'glass walls' that segregate Australian working men and women are as significant to the gender pay gap as the 'glass ceiling'.

Joining the panel discussion, moderated by DCA’s Knowledge & Development Manager, Andrew Maxwell, were:

  • Senator Jenny McAllister, who is Chair of the Finance and Public Administration References Committee that oversaw this Inquiry
  • Susan Ferrier, National Managing Partner, People, Performance and Culture, KPMG Australia who partnered with DCA to produce the She’s Price(d)less report on the economics of the gender pay gap
  • Lisa Annese, DCA CEO

The Gender Equality Network, proudly sponsored by Clayton Utz, is free and open exclusively to DCA members and is designed to explore leading practice on gender equality and to assist members in their preparations to meet reporting requirements on gender.
