Inaugural 2014 WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation awarded to Deloitte Australia
The firm is one of only 76 Australian business organisations to have received the prestigious accolade, with the number of employers recognised almost halved since 2012.
The new WGEA citation now comprises more rigorous pre-requisites making Deloitte’s achievement this year particularly impressive. The EOWA Employer of Choice for Women awards were last awarded in 2012 to 125 recipients, a citation Deloitte received for 11 consecutive years.
Launched in November 2013, the new citation has been developed in consultation with holders of the previous Employer of Choice for Women citation and has substantially raised the bar of expected performance for organisations seeking successful application for the EOCGE citation.
These more rigorous application requirements mean the 2014 citation holders are recognised as being industry leaders in their commitment to driving lasting cultural and organisational change in gender equality.
