[Ep49] Gender Pay Gap and What You Can Do About It

Gender Pay Gap and What You Can Do About It

Hey go-getters! Welcome back to another episode of Business in Heels where we empower women to conquer the corporate world.

Today, we're tackling a critical issue that hits close to home for many of us: the persistent gender pay gap. But instead of just raising awareness, we're diving into actionable steps to bridge this gap once and for all.

Joining me today is a powerhouse guest, Bianca Hartge-Hazelman. Bianca's not just an award-winning champion for gender equity – she's the brains behind Financi and a LinkedIn top voice on the topic. She's bringing a wealth of knowledge and actionable insights to help us drive real change, not just in Australia, but globally.

We'll be dissecting the latest advancements and setbacks in the fight for equality. We'll explore the often-overlooked role of unpaid labor in the pay gap equation and see how companies are (or aren't) addressing this issue.

But here's the best part: Bianca's going to break down how both individuals and businesses can step up. We'll talk about using data to make informed decisions, leveraging technology for workplace accountability, and most importantly, moving beyond awareness to real action.

Grab your headphones and join the conversation with Bianca Hartge-Hazelman, right here on Business in Heels!

Here are the key takeaways:

  1. Current Landscape: Despite social and regulatory progress in Australia, we're seeing a reversal in gender equality gains due to an increase in the unpaid work gap.
  2.  Organizational Action: Industries and businesses must intensify their efforts with concrete actions and policies, especially in male-dominated fields and senior management roles.
  3. Individual Empowerment: Use available data to make informed career decisions and engage employers in conversations about equality, flexibility, and policies that affect your work-life balance.
