SA minister for the Status of Women to address SA WID Chapter



SA minister for the Status of Women to address SA WID Chapter

Tickets are selling fast for the end-of-year event for the South Australian Chapter of Women in drinks.

Held at the beautiful Penfolds Magill Estate, the event will feature The Hon Zoe Bettison MP, Minister for the Status of Women, as guest speaker. 

Bettison will discuss whether targets work in business and how the SA Government is working to achieve better diversity in the workplace. Lucinda Hewitson, CEO of Diversity Inclusion, will introduce the Minister and facilitate discussion and questions following her speech.

The SA government recently commissioned its first-ever gender pay gap study, which discovered the State had the lowest gender pay gap in Australia - at 9.78% - but a 15% pay gap for public servants, despite 70% of public servants in the State being women.

“Recognising the public sector’s gender pay gap is the first step toward addressing it, and I am pleased this informative work has been done because we can’t change what we don’t know,”  Bettison said. “I’m really pleased to see our overall pay gap decreasing are that we are tracking in the right direction.”
