On 30 March 2023, Parliament passed the Workplace Gender Equality Amendment (Closing the Gender Pay Gap) Bill 2023.
From late 2023, there are new legislative requirements for both private and public sector employers when reporting to the WGEA on its gender equality indicators. One of the major changes to come out of these reforms is that in early 2024 – WGEA will publish employer gender pay gaps. You can find out more here.
Since reporting to WGEA began in 2013-14, Australian employers have made progress against most of the six gender equality indicators — but change isn't happening fast enough.
In this panel discussion at Grant Thornton’s office in Collins Street, Melbourne, Mary Wooldridge will be joined by Grant Thornton Australia CEO Greg Keith, as they discuss the upcoming changes to legislation and explore ways organisations can contribute to advancing gender equality.
