Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand Gender Pay Gap Statement

Pay equity is a strategic priority for both our organisation and our profession.

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand reports annually on our (Australian) workplace profile to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) - an Australian Government statutory agency responsible for administering the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012.

We also report on our workplace’s Gender Pay Gap and have prepared a statement for WGEA outlining our approach and recent progress.

Addressing the gender pay gap is key to enabling gender equity and strengthening social and economic outcomes for women. This is why pay equity is a critical component of both our own organisation’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) strategy, as well the advocacy we undertake on behalf of the entire accounting profession and our members.

CA ANZ’s commitment to narrowing its organisational gender pay gap was confirmed in 2021 when we introduced regular measuring, tracking and deep diving into causes. Narrowing the gender pay gap was embedded as a strategic priority for our organisation and has remained a Key Performance Indicator for our Executive Team since that time.

As a result of this commitment, we have seen a gradual narrowing of both the mean and median pay gaps for our organisation.
