Game-Changing Gender Data Launched

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency has released the inaugural findings from comprehensive gender data provided by Australian employers. This world-leading dataset paints the most comprehensive picture of gender equality in workplaces Australia has ever seen.

For the first time, the gender composition of Australia’s leadership pipeline is revealed in detail, showing that, while women comprise 39.8% of ‘other managers’, their representation falls to 26.1% of key management personnel (KMP) and just 17.3% of CEOs. One-third (33.5%) of employers have no female KMPs, and 31.3% of employers have no ‘other executives / general managers’ who are women. At the top three layers of the management hierarchy, women comprise just 26.2%.


This ground-breaking data confirms Australian organisations are failing to maximise the potential of the country’s highly educated female talent pool.
