The 2019 report is now available.

Wednesday, 22 May 2019

Workplace gender equality is achieved when people are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of gender. Australia has made significant progress towards gender equality in recent decades, particularly in education, health and female workforce participation. 

We have a variety of initiatives here at Newcastle Permanent to facilitate equal access to opportunities for all of our staff, such as:

  • Policies to ensure that sex-based gender harassment or discrimination does not occur
  • Flexible working conditions such as flexible hours and working from home which provide opportunities to staff who are balancing their career and caring responsibilities
  • Paid maternity and paternity leave is available to parents so they can take the time to enjoy their new family
  • In 2018, we commenced a program for women in leadership to facilitate career growth and mentoring for women, creating significant personal growth for the participants.

About the report

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency is an Australian Government statutory agency created by the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012, which requires organisations who employ more than 100 employees to submit a report to them each year.

The report includes a workplace profile of the number of male and female employees within the organisation broken down into manager and non-manager positions, as well as a questionnaire in relation to the policies and strategies we have in place to address gender equality across a number of different areas within the organisation.
