Our partners share our commitment to gender diversity and bringing our members value and expertise relevant to their industries.

We thank the organisations on this page for their invaluable support.

We believe that by bridging the gap between real industry leadership and rigorous academic guidance, we, along with our partners are delivering unique enterprise skills for the 21st-century innovation economy.

WORK180 is a global jobs network that operates at the forefront of a new workplace revolution.

Our function is twofold.

As an advocate for working women, we provide job applicants with a transparent directory of endorsed employers who support diversity, inclusion and equality.

We share information around pay equity, flexible working, paid parental leave, equal opportunities and a range of other important criteria. Before an employer comes on board, we put them through a pre-screening process and on average, about 80% of companies who apply to work with us, pass our criteria.

Our purpose (hopefully yours too)

To empower every woman to choose a workplace where they can thrive

NAWO is delighted to announce its membership of the Australian Gender Equality Council (AGEC). AGEC’s mission is simple: to achieve gender equality in Australia. Through high profile national awareness campaigns, advocacy and research, AGEC aims to drive a cultural shift in Australia, so that women have the same pay, same superannuation, same rights, same everything.

AGEC is currently developing a number of projects which in time will assist in the development of policy, raise awareness for gender equality and establish AGEC further as the authoritative and independent voice for gender equality in Australia.  The work that AGEC does is vital to taking women, and Australia, forward from a cultural and economic perspective.

Think AGEC, think gender equality. It’s time to finish the fight!
