100% of the Consult Australia Group provide flexible access to parental leave for all parents. The report highlights and celebrates stories of fathers accessing ‘shared care’ parental leave, offering equal access of up to 16 weeks parental leave for either parent. Shared parental leave helps to address stereotypes and provides all parents with equal opportunity to share care and career.
The Consult Australia Group are committed to the goals of gender equality, advancing more and diverse women into leadership, creating inclusive work environments.
A focus on behaviours that support an inclusive culture is changing the day-to-day experience for all our people. It requires our leaders to seek feedback, reflect on their biases, actively counter them
and try new approaches – in every interaction and decision.
