When: Friday 2 September
Time: 11.45 - 2pm
Where: Brisbane Marriott Hotel

Gender equality is achieved when people are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of whether they are a woman or a man.

Many countries worldwide, including Australia, have made significant progress towards gender equality in recent decades, particularly in areas such as education. However, women continue to earn less than men, are less likely to advance their careers as far as men, and are more likely to spend their final years in poverty. At the same time, men often find it more difficult to access family-friendly policies or flexible working arrangements than women.

The aim of gender equality in the workplace is to achieve broadly equal outcomes for women and men, not exactly the same outcome for all individuals. Achieving gender equality is important for workplaces not only because it is ‘fair’ and ‘the right thing to do’, it is also vitally important to the bottom line of a business and the productivity of our nation.

New Speaker: Donna McMahon, VP HR Organisational Capability, Aurizon
Libby Lyons, Director, Workplace Gender Equality Agency
Prof Polly Parker, Professor in Leadership, University of Queensland
Louise Ferris, Human Resources Director for McCullough Robertson
