The secrets of EnergyAustralia’s pay gap success will be revealed at a lunchtime webinar hosted by Australian Women in Resources Alliance (AWRA) next month.

Renowned as an industry leader in closing the gender pay gap EnergyAustralia has recently announced further steps on its journey.

In the webinar, Rebecca Fraser, Head of HR, Energy & Enterprise, at EnergyAustralia will present on how their organisation closed the pay gap as well as other diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Earlier this year EnergyAustralia announced that from April it will close its two per cent gender pay gap by investing $1.2 million into making sure that women and men with equivalent experience and skills receive the same pay for doing the same job.

Women make up about 40 per cent of the company’s 2500-strong staff, including in management positions.

Significantly, women occupy half of the 10 seats on the EnergyAustralia board, something that was recognised by Ernst and Young’s Women in Power and Utilities Index, which placed EnergyAustralia fifth out of 200 utilities around the world. EnergyAustralia was the only Australian company in the top 20.

Brought to AMMA members by AWRA, the lunchtime webinar will delve into how EnergyAustralia is making sure that women and men with equivalent experience and skills receive the same pay for doing the same job.

AWRA lunchtime webinars are essential viewing for anyone interested in increasing workforce gender diversity, particularly through remuneration practices.

The webinar will be held on Wednesday 28 November from 12.30pm – 1.30pm (AEST/Queensland time).
