Want to boost Australia’s GDP by 11 percent? The answer is to tap into Australia’s hidden resource – our women.

New research by Goldman Sachs JBWere finds that whilst some progress has been made in Australia towards gender equality, we’re still have two thirds to go. And the estimated value for closing the gender equity gap is 11%!

 “A large gulf exists in the historical measures of male and female productivity growth in Australia. Male productivity has historically averaged over double that of female productivity over the past 30 years. We refuse to believe that a female with the same educational and work experience as a male will be 50 per cent less productive in a similar role.”

Well. Can I just say 'hats off' to Margaret Court. I don't share her views on same sex marriage but I do think good on her for standing up and standing by her opinion. It's a good reminder that a bit more work is required to ensure all
Australians understand equality and so are willing to embrace it.
