Women in the Australian workforce

The statistics are sobering.

Women make up 46% of the Australian workforce but only account for 3.5% of the ASX200 CEOs.

< 15% of panellists in Australia are women.

< 12% of experts cited in business newspapers are women.

And yet companies with higher proportions of women board directors outperform those with lower proportions by 53%.

The evidence is clear: diversity drives better outcomes for business and the community.
So this is not just a moral imperative; it is a source of competitive advantage.

The Panel Pledge is a national initiative addressing the imbalance for women in public and professional forums. Another gender equity initiative is the Male Champions of Change, where prominent Australian leaders have committed to increasing women's visibility and accelerating their professional advancement.

Your Leadership Voice: Women in Focus reflects this national priority. Your Leadership Voice addresses particular challenges facing women in leadership positions. This highly interactive and practical program will equip women with the tools, techniques and support they need to step up and stand out.
