2021 Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Annual Report

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.

2) The Workforce Management Statistics is designed to provide numerical data relating to employee movements, by gender and (WGEA-defined) manager or non-manager category during the 12-month reporting period from 1-April-2020 to 31-March-2021.

3) The Questionnaire format has changed from previous years. The new format is set out in four broader topic areas, rather than six gender equality indicators as in previous years. The topic areas are workplace overview, action on gender equality, employee work/life balance and employee support.
