A Gender Equal Future of Work

A Gender Equal Future of Work

Executive Summary

2 November 2018

The discussion paper A Gender Equal Future of Work, released by the Champions of Change Founding Group and STEM Group, urges leaders to prioritise gender equality in their business strategies for now and the future.

Without intentional and bold action Australia could ‘sleepwalk’ into the future of work – replicating and exacerbating gender inequality.

The discussion paper describes how leaders are challenging and transforming structures that perpetuate gender inequality as they plan for and manage rapid advances in technology, social and demographic shifts, and increasing consumer, citizen and stakeholder expectations. The paper also identifies gender equality opportunities and the risks associated with inaction, with women’s representation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) a specific focus.

The paper offers detailed case studies on how organisations such as Qantas, Telstra, MYOB, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Aurecon, Accenture and Australian Nuclear Science Technology Organisation are integrating gender equality into the centre of their business strategies.
