The theme for IWD this year is Press for Progress. How are progressing?
In 2017 females accounted for the majority of the sharp 403,000 rise in employment, entering more full-time jobs than males.
The average annual pay packet of full-time female employees is $26,527 less than men’s, rising to $89,216 at the top level of management.
The most challenging gender gaps remain in the economic and health spheres. Given the continued widening of the economic gender gap, it will now not be closed for another 217 years.
Women who retired in 2016 had an average super balance of $157,000 while men had $271,000 – an average $120,000 less in their super than men.
Although organisations are increasingly investing in building culturally diverse and gender balanced leadership profiles, culturally diverse women are notably under-represented in leadership ranks.
Australian women graduate from university in equal numbers to men, but they don’t progress through the workforce at the same rate. Data collected by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency shows that just one in four key management personnel and one in eight CEOs are women.
In the 12 months to December 2016, the Financy Women’s Index powered by Data Digger improved 4.1 points to 106.2 points, as the number of women occuping corporate board positions rose and the disparity between average earnings fell to its lowest level in five years.
No women worked in the navy, defence or police forces. There were no women coach or railway engine drivers, magistrates, electricians or chimney sweeps
Substantial differences identified in feedback provided to women and men point to the perceived riskiness of female appointments. Women are told more frequently than men that they need to display “more confidence” and have “more experience” to be promoted.
