Promoting gender equality

As a business, we are committed to improving the representation of women in management roles by building a pipeline of strong female talent across all areas of our organisation.

Since the appointment of our Chairman, Gordon Cairns, in September 2015, there has been a strong focus to drive diversity through increased female representation on our Board. Woolworths' Board now has an equal representation of women and men. Gordon Cairns is also a member of the Male Champions of Change, a group of CEOs and senior executives committed to achieving change on gender equality issues in organisations and communities.

Key Highlights 

  • Over 54% of our workforce are women and we are working to increase the number of women in leadership roles
  • 42% of managers are women, continuing on our long-term commitment to improving gender equality 
  • 41% of our workforce work part-time and 33% work casually

We have a concerted focus on gender equality and inclusion for all team members ensuring that Woolworths continues to work with its team members to offer flexible work options and the opportunity to develop successful careers. 

Woolworths is committed to addressing the Gender Pay Gap. This is done through our Equal Pay Policy which outlines our process regarding the determination of the right level of reward for roles.

The business also conducts an annual Pay Parity Review, where the analysis will measure and identify any like-for-like gaps, by-level gaps and organisation-wide gaps which assists the business to address any gaps.
