Employer of Choice for Gender Equality Application

Statement by Susan Just - Principal

I wish to advise that Lauriston Girls’ School has recently lodged its annual compliance report to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency and is now applying for the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality “EOCGE” citation.

I would like to reconfirm my commitment, as Principal of Lauriston Girls’ School, to achieving compliance under the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (“Act”) and gender equality in the workplace.

I am committed to ensuring Lauriston Girls’ School becomes a leading employer of choice and ensuring that job opportunities are provided to the most suitable person based on merit rather than gender.  At Lauriston, we aim to promote and improve gender equality for both women and men and the School refers to the Act when recruiting and employing staff.

The School’s primary business is the education of young women, and our policy is to model to our students and staff best practice in our workplace gender equality procedures.

I am committed to maintaining fair and productive workplace practices with pay equity as a key component. I am committed to ensuring women and men who do work of equal or comparable value receive the same remuneration. The majority of staff at Lauriston are paid in accordance with the School’s collective agreement which ensures all staff are paid equally on the basis of qualifications, skills, and years of experience rather than gender.  At Lauriston we periodically undertake a gender pay gap analysis to ensure that any identified instances of pay inequity are addressed.

I and the rest of the Executive team encourage all staff, regardless of gender, to work in non-traditional roles. We actively support the development of women in non-traditional roles such as IT, Finance and Property and we also encourage the development of men in non-traditional areas such as early childhood and primary teaching.

I would like to remind staff that the School offers and provides flexible working practices for all employees such as part time employment and job share arrangements. We currently have a number of staff who work in a part time capacity and as part of formal job share arrangements. I would encourage you to speak with me or a member of the Executive team if you would like to explore flexible working arrangements further.

I would welcome feedback and suggestions in regards to how we can identify and address gender equality issues at Lauriston Girls’ School.
