Media alert. Gender pay gap: Company data published for the first time. What can businesses do to bring it down?

Our Watch < 1 mins read

Today many workers across Australia for the first time can see what the gender pay gap looks like in their workplace. The Our Watch Institute Director Cara Gleeson is available to provide expert commentary, focusing on how businesses can bring down the gender pay gap by boosting gender equality.  

“The great news is the gender pay gap is dropping, however at a median gap of 19% it’s too high, and over a woman’s lifetime she loses more than $1 million on average,” Ms Gleeson said. “The release of this data will help businesses understand their organisation’s pay gap and help drive change that can speed up the reduction in the pay gap.” 

Spokesperson: Cara Gleeson, Director, Our Watch Institute

Date: 27/2/2024

Time: From 6 am

Location: By phone, video call, or in person, subject to availability, in Melbourne CBD
