Participate in Aon’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Policies and Practices Study

Aon’s DEI policies and practices study is designed to provide valuable insight for the HR practitioners at any stage of the DEI journey. This is particularly timely for organisations with 500 or more employees as they prepare to comply with WGEA’s requirement to have a policy or strategy in support of six gender equality indicators.

You’ll receive a complimentary summary report, with quite a bit of detail, that can provide insights and help assess the WGEA gender equality indicators. Additionally you can purchase the full benchmark report for $5,000 plus GST.


Why participate?

  1. Practical insight – to inform your policy and strategy review. For example, how common is it for organisations to link pay equity KPIs to executive incentive scorecards? What accountability mechanisms do they have in place?
  2. Benchmark your organisation – how does your DEI budget compare; and are you leading, on par, or lagging the market on each of WGEA’s gender equality indicators? Having the right data can help you manage internal stakeholders to accelerate buy in and investment.
  3. Fact-based action planning – WGEA’s publication of organisational gender pay gaps will require more than an explanatory statement. Organisations will need to demonstrate that they have short, medium and long-term action plans to close the gap. For example, find out how your peers are approaching gender composition targets for their Board and executive leadership.

What participants will receive:

  • A complimentary Summary Report that will help you assess your WGEA's gender equality indicators.
  • Optional: Participants can purchase the full report at $5,000 plus GST. This customised benchmark report will show how your organisation’s plans measure against study participants in aggregate.
