The Public Service Gender Pay Gap Action Plan l Te Mahere Mahi Rerekētanga Ira Tangata has put evidence-based actions to close the gender pay gap into practice across the Public Service. The Action Plan is ambitious, with milestones in four focus areas – equal pay, flexible work, addressing bias, and leadership – over the course of two and a half years. This progress report summarises what we've achieved and learnt and recognises the remaining challenges.
The Action Plan aims for the Public Service to model behaviours that can be normalised by employers in the State and private sectors. We hope that shining a light on our progress so far, and the challenges we’ve faced, helps others to tailor and focus their own gender equality work, and to create fairer workplaces for women.
