Equality is everyone’s business

Glass ceilings. Earning 79 cents for every dollar. 47% less super at retirement age. Limited parental leave. We can’t fix something we can’t see.

Have a look at how Australia’s largest companies are performing on gender equality.

THE STATE OF GENDER EQUALITY IN ASX100 COMPANIES

When we went to look at gender equity, we realised there was no way to see how companies are treating their workers based on gender. So we conducted our own research and thought everyone deserved to see.

This research is based on data compiled by the Workplace Gender Equality Authority (WGEA), the government agency tasked with promoting and improving gender equality in the workplace. We used this data, plus current workforce composition to place Australia’s largest companies on a continuum from leaders to laggards.

According to the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012, not all employers meet the requirements for mandatory reporting, therefore our analysis considered only those within the ASX100 that did (a total of 86 companies). Some companies on the ASX100 who have multiple entities (i.e. Rio Tinto Aluminium Ltd, Rio Tinto Services Ltd) are required to file multiple WGEA reports, so we have represented them with a single composite score for the parent company.

More information on the analysis can be found in the Equality Is Everyone’s Business Report 2020.

What can companies do better?

We asked every one of the ASX100 to lead the charge for change by making commitments to progress on gender equality based on one of the following six areas. Here are the asks:

1

Be more transparent

Publishing data is good business. Shareholders (including members of superfunds) increasingly want to be able to review a company’s performance on gender equity in the same way they can review its financial performance.

2

Create clear targets

Company leaders set performance targets across a range of metrics. Gender equity should be one of them. Writing a policy is meaningless if its perceived within the company as a token gesture. Creating targets and reporting against them incentivises meaningful action at all levels of the business.

3

Crunch the numbers

Understanding how the numbers add up supports real, specific, evidence-based progress on gender equity.

4

Eliminate bias

Recruitment, remuneration and promotion all involve a variety of human inputs that are susceptible to gender bias. Anonymising applicant responses, providing transparent salary ranges and standardising performance reviews are just a few of the many readily available methods companies can employ to eliminate bias.

5

Offer real flexibility

Providing the opportunity for both men and women to balance career and home duties is an essential element in achieving gender equity. Working part-time does not mean a woman is less committed to her job. Men should not be made to feel that flexible working conditions are only meant for women. Policies need to be put in place, but senior leaders also need to model and champion flexible work practices to ensure that company culture keeps up.

6

Look after parents

Employer-funded paid parental leave is still not the norm in Australia, but it should really only be the beginning. A robust and inclusive parental leave policy considers how employees, regardless of gender, balance their careers and family by taking into account the employee’s career goals; as well as, their potential needs regarding flexibility, childcare and school holiday care.

7

Support women’s career progression

Greater diversity in leadership delivers better business outcomes. At Future Super, we have already stopped investing in any company that has an all-male board (yes, they definitely still exist). Companies should take an active approach by setting internal targets for female representation in leadership, offering mentoring and networking opportunities, and by embedding flexibility into all levels of the company structure.
