Since 2016, the BCEC|WGEA Gender Equity Insights report series has reflected on the progress – or otherwise – that Australian organisations are making towards workplace gender equality in pay, progression, and leadership.

Drawing on the much-valued partnership between the Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre (BCEC) and the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), the series capitalises on WGEA’s world-leading data collection to produce innovative, evidence-based research to advance our understanding of what initiatives work in creating more gender equitable workplaces.

The new BCEC|WGEA Gender Equity Insights 2022 report will – for the first time – provide an authentic comparison of gender pay gaps and workplace settings across Australian states and territories, and between metropolitan and regional areas of the country. In doing so, we hope to improve our understanding of the key drivers of gender pay gaps by location.

The report assesses the prevalence of workplace policies related to flexible working, sexual harassment, carer’s support and parental leave, and protections for those experiencing family and domestic violence.

This brand new research will also focus on the different workplace experiences of women working in regional and rural areas of Australia, and older aged workers, alongside a special feature on how employment and remuneration have evolved over time for people working in the care sector.
