Employer of Choice for Gender Equality

St Barbara is the only Australian gold mining company in 2018 to receive the “Employer of Choice for Gender Equality”.

St Barbara is the only Australian gold mining company in 2018 to receive the “Employer of Choice for Gender Equality” citation from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.

Addressing the pay gap is key to creating gender equality and we conduct a monthly pay gap analysis and an annual like-for-like analysis. By regularly analysing our data, we have reduced our pay gap from 43% in 2007 to 14% at 2017. Importantly, we have maintained a nil gender pay gap for ‘like-for-like’ roles since at least 2013.

“Gender equality is a journey and, whilst I am delighted with St Barbara’s progress in gender equality in what has traditionally been a male-dominated industry, we are actively pursuing further improvement.  As a Pay Equity Ambassador, I encourage more resource companies to participate in the WGEA Employer of Choice program”
