August and September are big months for the topic of gender equality. With the latest ABS data on average weekly earnings (used to calculate the Gender Pay Gap) coming out in August and Equal Pay Day following shortly after there’s lots to talk about.
If anyone saw Q&A this week, where Ricci Bartels shared her story about struggling to find employment later in life and the toughest time of her life that she lived through as a result. While highlighting a range of political and social issues that no doubt needs our focus and attention, it was a scarily important reminder of why it’s vital to be as proactive as possible about preparing for our future because it’s so easy for things in our lives to change. Women in particular find themselves particularly financially vulnerable later in life, making it a perfect time to focus on ket gender equality issues such as women and financial insecurity with the imminent release of up-to-date data on the pay gap and its progress being released.
As a part of it, we’ve got lots of great content and articles planned to continue the conversation on financial equality. And, as a little warm up our CEO, Carla Harris got to speak to the awesome team at Women Love Tech about why the stubborn gender pay gap got her on a mission to change our financial future whenever we spend.
