eS4W is working towards a greater awareness of the gender pay gap and gender pay issues nationally, particularly amongst people under 35 years. We have a current focus on gender pay equity in the small to medium employer (SME) sector, working to engage such businesses in the steps and processes needed to ensure they offer pay equity across genders.
We are entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution; emerging technologies and changing demographics are expected to significantly change the future landscape of work globally and in Australia. Recent research paints a picture of our future work that is far from clear. That said, it is incumbent upon all individuals to plan for their future prosperity, by recognising the forces that are likely to shape that future.
economic Security4Women wants women to enjoy lifelong economic wellbeing. Our background paper on the future of work has been released to coincide with Equal Pay Day 2016, and encourages women and girls in Australia to pro-actively plan for a prosperous future in the emerging landscape of ‘new work’.
