Firm has been recognized for gender equality efforts on multiple occasions
The move comes a few days before the country marks Equal Pay Day on 4 September. Cox is not the first from KWM to be named, as global managing partner Sue Kench has long been recognized with the same distinction. According to the WGEA, such ambassadors help create change by:
- playing a leadership role in their business community and to the broader public
- reinforcing their commitment to pay equity within their own organisation
- profiling and promoting their approach to pay equity
The WGEA has recognized KWM as an “Employer of Choice for Gender Equality” on multiple occasions, most recently last December.
According to the latest figures from the Bureau of Statistics, the national gender pay gap stands at 15.3%. On average, men working full-time earned $1,638.30 and women earned $1,387.10, a difference of $251.20 per week.
