Equality Pact 2030

Questions?

Read through the Economic Equality Pact and ask yourself, can my organisation make the pledge to help make these points a reality by 2030. If yes (and we hope it is) contact Financy about signing the Pact and send us your company logo to get started.

Yes! We want to hear what you are doing to meet the commitments of the Economic Equality Pact 2030. Plus we also want to know if you are going above and beyond. Once we have this information from you, and once we see this in action, we can promote your efforts on our platform.

The Economic Equality Pact 2030 is aligned to the key areas of financial inequality identified in the Financy Women’s Index. In developing the Pact we researched the measures that are likely to be effective in moving the dial on progress. We reviewed these measures with the members of the Financy Women’s Index Advisory Committee and with the Centre for Workplace Excellence at UniSA. Financy also opened this Pact up to a two month public consultation period prior to inviting signatories.

The Economic Equality Pact 2030 is open to organisations of any size, who wish to take a stand in support of gender financial equality.  Only an authorised person from an organisation can sign the Pact.
