I recently signed the Pay Equity Pledge for Biarri Networks. I am now a Pay Equity Ambassador for the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.
I did this because I believe strongly that gender-based pay gaps should not exist within Australian workplaces and I wish to demonstrate my support of WGEA’s programs in addressing it.
At Biarri Networks we undertook a pay gap analysis and discussed it with the team. The gender balance in tech companies needs improvement. When we improve this we improve the business. Pay equity is just one basic measure we need to take to ensure we create an inclusive and fair workplace.
I encourage all business leaders to take this step.
