She’s Price(d)less: The economics of the gender pay gap

October 2016

KPMG

This report uses structured econometric modelling to determine the factors that underpin the gender pay gap, and to what extent they contribute to the issue. This report,an update to analysis  initially conducted in 2009,shows that despite the endeavours of government and business, the size of the gap, and in particular the role of gender discrimination, has remained stagnant in the past seven years. Given the significant public debate since the release of the original 2009 Report, this update is intended to further contribute to the current public discussion, and drive a deeper and more holistic understanding of the social and economic factors that contribute to the gender pay gap. An Executive Companion, has also been made available. This provides:

  • a snapshot of the research findings
  • a range of practical actions to help address the gender pay gap
  • short case studies outlining the experience and insights of leading Australian companies as they addressed the gap within their own organisations
