MedTech News: Baxter Healthcare has been named among the top companies in Australia for gender equality for a sixth consecutive year.

The Australian Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) has cited Baxter Healthcare as an “Employer of Choice for Gender Equality”.
The prestigious citation is awarded to organisations who set the benchmark for gender equality in the workplace.

Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), Director Libby Lyons, congratulated Baxter for its leadership and commitment to inclusion and diversity in the workplace.

“Despite the tremendous upheaval and disruption caused to Australian businesses by the COVID-19 pandemic, these dedicated organisations maintained an unswerving commitment to achieving their WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation.

“We know that gender equality is good for business and crucial to our post-COVID-19 economic recovery. By driving better gender equality outcomes in their workplaces, these EOCGE citation holders are showing the right way forward for other Australian businesses.”

General Manager of Baxter Australia & New Zealand, Steven Flynn, said “More leadership is needed across all industries to accelerate our progress on gender equality.”

“Senior Leadership Teams must take ownership of inclusion and diversity with a commitment to drive real tangible change,” Mr Flynn said.

“Baxter Healthcare is proud to be cited among the top companies in Australia for a sixth consecutive year as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality.

“Our formal policies, development programs and a continued commitment to inclusion and diversity has all but eliminated the gender pay gap in our organisation and is helping to grow the next generation of women leaders at Baxter.”

Baxter gender equality policies and practices include:

  1. Proactively supporting women to succeed in leadership roles through accelerated learning programs, networking, mentoring and coaching opportunities.
  2. Employment practices that ensure pay equality based on merit.
