The Workplace Gender Equality Agency is an Australian Government statutory agency created by the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. The Agency is charged with promoting and improving gender equality in Australian workplaces. It works collaboratively with employers providing advice, practical tools and education to help them improve their gender performance. The Agency also work with employers to help them comply with the reporting requirements under the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. This reporting framework aims to encourage measures that improve gender equality outcomes and has been designed to minimise the regulatory burden on business. The Agency uses the reporting data to develop educational benchmark reports based on six gender equality indicators. The benchmark reports can be customised by industry and organisation size and enable employers to identify areas for focus, develop informed strategies and measure performance against peers over time.

Women in the World got its start in 2009 as an offshoot of The Daily Beast, an IAC digital news site created by Tina Brown in 2008. Inspired by the heroic women leaders she met through the Vital Voices Global Partnership, Brown resolved to give a platform to global women on the front lines—activists, artists, CEOs, peacemakers, entrepreneurs, and firebrand dissidents who have saved or enriched lives and shattered glass ceilings in every sector. Women in the World invited them to convene and tell their compelling stories. Over the past six years, the Summit, executive-produced by Kyle Gibson, has become the premier showcase for women of impact—and for the men who champion them—by presenting vivid journalistic narratives, stirring videos, and provocative discussions.
