The gender equality in the workplace discussion is nothing new. In March, it was revealed that the pay gap is alive and well, with full-time Australian women being paid, on average, 16 per cent less than full-time men. And as of March this year the ASX 200 had just nine women CEOs and 10 women chairing boards.
