A NSW free from poverty and inequality

Gender segregation in the workplace and its impact on women's economic equality

NCOSS's Submission to the Finance and Public Administration References Committee Inquiry looks at how gender segregation is shaped by a multitude of factors that are complex and interconnected, and how understanding their complexity is critical to designing interventions to address them. The submission focuses on the three key drivers for industrial and occupational gender segregation in Australia:

  • Education: Fields of study, career choices and pay gaps
  • Women in Leadership: Discrimination and structural bias
  • The gendered nature of work and caring responsibilities
