This first report in the BCEC|WGEA Gender Equity Insights series seeks to add to and strengthen the evidence base that exists around gender pay gaps throughout Australian workplaces. The report uses unique data reported to WGEA, capturing 4 million workers and more than 12,000 employers.

The report findings also draw attention to the greater remuneration men receive compared to women in almost every scenario, but particularly among more senior occupation levels and when additional remuneration is taken into account.

Our research has also uncovered some of the strongest evidence to date that shows greater representation of women on Boards is associated with a significant reduction in the gender pay gap.
