Network Ten has welcomed the release of the Male Champions of Change’s (MCC) Progress Report 2016, an annual review that reveals the progress major Australian employers are making in achieving equality for women in the workplace.
Network Ten chief executive officer Paul Anderson is a founding member of the MCC, the aim of which is to achieve a significant and sustainable increase in the representation of women in leadership roles in major organisations across Australia.
Key findings related to Network Ten in the MCC Progress Report 2016 included:
• 50% of Network Ten’s key management personnel are women, the highest proportion among the organisations surveyed for the report
• 52.6% of Network Ten’s senior managers are women, the second-highest proportion among the organisations surveyed for the report
• 61% of the staff hired by Network Ten during 2016 were women.
Over the past three years, Network Ten has introduced a number of programs to improve gender equality in the workplace.
Those programs include All Roles Flexible At Ten, an initiative that was introduced in late 2015 to encourage all staff to balance their work lives with their personal needs by making their work hours and conditions flexible.
During 2015-16, Network Ten significantly narrowed the pay gap between its male and female staff. According to the Workplace Gender Equity Agency, Network Ten now has the smallest pay gap in the local media industry.
