WGEA Employre of Choice for Gender Equality

Congratulations to the newly announced Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation holders for 2017-2018.

It is great to see a record 120 organisations receiving the citation this year, which recognises employer commitment and best practice in promoting gender equality in Australian workplaces.

DCA concurs with WGEA Director Libby Lyons' sentiments that this steady growth in the list indicates that the business benefits and competitive advantage gained by improving gender equality in Australian workplaces are becoming ever more widely recognised.

Trends among this year’s recipients include:

  • entrenching organisation-wide flexible work
  • programs to support women into leadership
  • tailored parental leave policies to support use by both women and men
  • initiatives to attract women into male-dominated roles
  • supporting men’s caring responsibilities
  • robust analysis and correction of gender pay gaps.
