This ground-breaking program provides the opportunity for staff over fifty years of age to reduce their workload and fraction for up to five years prior to retirement, and retain full time superannuation benefits.
Other ways ACU is actively supporting gender equality include maintaining high levels of women’s participation at all levels of the workforce, providing generous parental leave provisions to women and men, and providing a range of flexible working options to allow staff to manage their work and personal commitments.
“WGEA data shows there is progress towards gender equality in Australian workplaces, but it is too slow,” Director of WGEA, Libby Lyons, said.
“It is only through more employers adopting leading practices to promote gender equality in the workplace that we will see the pace of change pick up,” Ms Lyons said.
ACU will continue to implement the Gender Equality Strategy 2015-2020 which aims to leverage the benefits of diversity, and provide opportunities for women and men to reach their potential.
