Call for combined effort on gender equity.

“… CEOs for Gender Equity executive director Tania Cecconi used Workplace Gender Equality Agency data to calculate statistics for WA.

According to Ms Cecconi, 65 of the 431 reporting companies in WA had female chief executives in 2018-19, compared to 63 out of 413 in 2017-18.

Ms Cecconi found a 10.7 per cent increase in WA companies completing a gender pay gap analysis, a 6.2 per cent increase in flexible working strategies, and a 9.4 per cent increase in female directors.

The biggest progress could be seen in the uptake of companies implementing domestic violence policies, which increased by 40 per cent.”
