Commitment to zero gender pay gap

NewsFebruary 27, 2024

Today, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) will commence publishing gender pay gap data for all Australian employers with 100 or more employees.  

Anglicare Sydney’s median base salary gender pay gap is 2.2% for the reporting period 2022-23, compared to the industry gap of 4.9%, and national result of 14.5%.   

Anglicare welcomes the transparency of this reporting to improve accountability and motivate action by employers to accelerate progress on gender equity and improve the experience of women in workplaces.  

Simon Miller, Chief Executive Officer, said “Gender pay equity is an expression of who we are at Anglicare, and it reflects our values of integrity and justice. We exist to serve people in need in our community, enrich lives and share the love of Jesus, valuing all people as made in the image of the living God  

“Gender pay equity is important to us, our employees, and our community, and we are committed to eliminating the gap. We also play an important role by making a positive contribution to our industry and the national standard.”  

Over the next year, Anglicare’s actions include:  

  • Reviewing gender composition of leadership teams and succession plans 
  • Identifying and resolving gender pay gaps for same or similar roles 
  • Analysing and addressing the drivers of gender pay gap 
  • Revising the remuneration framework and formal performance review processes to reflect zero gender pay gap commitment 
  • Enhancing our job evaluation processes and improving our salary market data sources  

Closing the gender pay gap reflects Anglicare’s value of all people made in the image of the living God, with full equality of men and women in Creation and Redemption, according to Genesis 1:26–28, 2:23, 5:1–2; 1 Corinthians 11:11–12; Galatians 3:13, 3:28, 5:1.
