The Workplace Gender Equality Agency 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.
It works collaboratively with employers providing advice, practical tools and education to help them improve their gender performance. Their staff are workplace gender equality specialists and provide industry-specific advice.
