Australia, like many countries, is making positive strides towards gender equality. However, there is still more work to be done.
Despite the many lucrative benefits of achieving gender equality – McKinsey found that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15 per cent more likely to have financial returns – Australian women today still make up less than 30 per cent of ASX200 board positions, earn 14 per cent less than men and have 42 per cent less superannuation by retirement age.
The Future Women Executive Summit, produced in partnership with Informa, is a two-day conference and networking event designed to address these pertinent issues and help Australian companies achieve gender equality, faster.
Join Helen McCabe, Dr Kerryn Phelps, Wendy McCarthy and more than 30 industry experts as they uncover the critical pathways to the top jobs, examine the role of female role models in empowering women, shine a light on the industries currently promoting opportunities for women, and develop a strategic roadmap for success.
