Workplace Gender Equality
Gender equality is achieved when people are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of whether they are a woman or a man.
The aim of gender equality in the workplace is to achieve broadly equal outcomes for women and men, not exactly the same outcome for all individuals. To achieve this requires:
- workplaces to provide equal remuneration for women and men for work of equal or comparable value
- the removal of barriers to the full and equal participation of women in the workforce
- full and genuine access to all occupations and industries, including to leadership roles for women and men
- elimination of discrimination on the basis of gender particularly in relation to family and caring responsibilities for both women and men
Achieving gender equality is important for workplaces not only because it is ‘fair’ and ‘the right thing to do’, it is also vitally important to the bottom line of a business and to the productivity of our nation.
As part of our notification and access requirements, Revesby Workers Club confirms that the transitional report for the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) 2015-2016 has been lodged.
