WGEA logo as a yellow tick

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) is an Australian Government statutory agency created by the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012.

The Agency is charged with promoting and improving gender equality in Australian workplaces.

UNSW celebrates the Workplace Gender Equality Agency’s decision to publish gender pay gap results for organisations across Australia.

Publishing gender pay gap data ensures transparency and holds organisations to account in openly acknowledging disparities and taking responsibility for addressing them. Core to UNSW’s commitment to inclusion and equity is a commitment to fairness and progress. We look forward to identifying specific areas where gender disparities may be more pronounced in order to develop targeted strategies and initiatives to address these disparities and promote equality. Addressing gender disparities contributes to creating a more inclusive and equitable work and study environment, fostering a sense of belonging for all individuals. UNSW is committed to working with members of our community and across the sector to close the gap and ensure gender pay parity for all.

In accordance with the requirements of the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012, on Thursday 5 August 2021, UNSW Sydney lodged its annual public report with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.

In 2021, WGEA has introduced a number of key changes to its annual compliance reporting program. The Compliance Reporting Program is a mandatory program under the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 . In previous years, the Agency provided the employer report in a single document known as the “Public Report”. This has now changed to three public reports:

  1. Workplace Profile Report
  2. Workforce Management Statistics Report
  3. Questionnaire Report

1)  The Workplace Profile is designed to provide information about workforce composition, salaries and remuneration. It provides a snapshot of UNSW workforce as at 1 February 2021, as an aggregated table.
