QANTM submits an annual public report with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).
Under the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012, QANTM is required to provide a report to the agency against a standard set of Gender Equality Indications (GEIs), covering the gender composition of our workforce and board, remuneration between women and men, availability and utilisation of employment terms, conditions and practices relating to flexible work arrangements and other policies and practices that support gender equality in the workplace. This information is then used to establish national public benchmarks against industry and will assist QANTM to identify areas of best practice and areas for improvement.
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. WGEA work collaboratively with employers providing advice, practical tools and education to help them improve their gender performance. WGEA staff are workplace gender equality specialists and provide industry-specific advice.
WGEA also work with employers to help them comply with the reporting requirements under the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. This reporting framework aims to encourage measures that improve gender equality outcomes and has been designed to minimise the regulatory burden on business.
