Women's Economic Security

Our work helps to support more Australian women into work. This helps to improve their economic security today and helps them accumulate retirement savings for the future.

Increasing women’s workforce participation is an economic and social priority. It’s good for women and their families, their communities, business and the nation’s economy.

It’s an opportunity to harness the power of our most important asset – the human capital of our 24 million Australians.

We advise the Government on policy and programme areas that include:

  • Economic security for women including tax and transfer, pay equity, financial literacy and superannuation.
  • Women’s workforce participation including childcare and paid parental leave, flexible work places and women in non-traditional roles, trades and sectors.
