In accordance with the requirements of the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Act), in June 2023, CHOICE lodged its annual public report with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (Agency).

The report adds to national data on gender equality in the workplace, the aim of which is to achieve broadly equal opportunities and outcomes for women and men.

  • 42.5% of our management are female and 57.5% are male
  • CHOICE provides staff with most of the key flexible work practices to support gender equality suggested by the WGEA, highlighting our support for employees.
  • The organisation-wide gender pay gap for total remuneration is currently: 9.4%*

What is the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA)?

WGEA is an Australian Government statutory agency, established because of the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. The Agency is charged with promoting and improving gender equality in Australian workplaces who employ 100 or more employees, working collaboratively with employers advising on practical tools and education to help them improve their gender performance.

Why do we undertake an annual WGEA audit?

Under the Act, as an employer of over 100 employees we are required to report to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency annually on a set of standardised reporting matters under six gender equality indicators.

We find this audit a useful way for us to understand where we sit on a national scale and identify where we can continue to improve. We use insights from our WGEA reports to support our work on equality at CHOICE.

We are committed to continuously improving our strategies and policies towards a more gender equal work environment. To view our commitment and give context to our gender pay gap results, you can read our WGEA Employer Statement [PDF].
