Financy is looking to partner with like-minded organisations that don’t just talk-the-talk but actually walk-the-walk when it comes to taking action to achieve gender financial equality and helping Australia become a world leader in women’s progress.
We note: “Not one single country in the world is on track to achieve gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls by 2030 as was set out in Agenda 2030,” says Josep Borrell Fontelles, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission.
Achieving financial equality and gender diversity at a company level must be about more than box ticking and pink-washed marketing. It’s about taking action for the long-term.
We believe that our partner organisations must be willing to showcase and explain ongoing efforts to correct and support the achievement of gender financial equality, which is why we are looking to work with organisations that are either working towards or already at one or more of the following progress points.
- Are a current year WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation holder
- Are a signatory to the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs)
- Comply with Women’s Empowerment Principle 7 which calls on signatories to publish company policies, practices and progress for promoting gender equality, and to plan, measure and report annually on progress, both internally and externally, using gender disaggregated data.
- Can provide Financy with evidence of both internal and external actions on financial gender diversity and equality initiatives, as well as women’s empowerment initiatives as part of an ESG or similar framework.
Financy wants organisations to take action and we recognise that some companies have a long road ahead but we are willing to help you get there or even help you find the pathway back to progress. Contact us for more support.
