Reporting on gender equality progress

Defined entities are required to measure progress towards gender equality in their workplaces.

Reporting on progress is important to evaluate the success of your Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP) and gender impact assessments. This will help you achieve workplace gender equality and promote gender equality in your policies, programs and services. Your organisation will be required to submit a progress report to the Public Sector Gender Equality Commissioner every two years after submitting your GEAP.

Progress reports must include:


For universities who are reporting to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), your first progress report will be due for submission in October 2023 alongside other defined entities. However the relevant reporting period is 1 April 2021 – 31 March 2023 to align with your WGEA obligations.

Submitting your progress reports

The first progress report is due by 31 October 2023.

You will submit your reports through the login portal coming soon. For the latest updates subscribe to our newsletter.
