Step up big business: More Australian organisations need to meet simple gender principles
By Angela Priestley, Women’s Agenda / Jul 17, 2014
This week, Oxfam published a report finding that at the current rate of decline, the world will be waiting another 75 years before closing the gender pay gap.
The report has got people talking, with news articles and opinion pieces published across almost all our major news outlets. Looking at it from the perspective of 75 years is clever. It’s a figure people can remember and recite. An easy grab that highlights just how much work there is to do. It’ll be a figure that’s continually quoted in the months to come, much like the finding from the Grattan Institute that estimates a six per cent increase in women’s workforce participation would see Australia’s GDP increase by $25 billion.
