The 141 companies recognised as employers of choice for women

The 141 companies recognised as employers of choice for women

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency has today announced 2018-19 Employers of Choice for Gender Equality.

A record 141 organisations were recognised for their commitment and best practice in promoting gender equality in Australian workplaces. There are 26 first-time recipients including the first-ever national sporting organisation, the Australian Football League.

“Our EOCGE citation does not signify that these employers have solved all of their gender equality issues,” WGEA director Libby Lyons says. “Rather, it recognises that they have embraced a rigorous and detailed programme to transform their workplaces.”

The employer of choice citation is a voluntary leading practice recognition program and includes  leadership, learning and development, gender remuneration gaps, flexible working and other initiatives to support family responsibilities, employee consultation, preventing sex-based harassment and discrimination, and targets for improving gender equality outcomes.
