Mirvac has been ranked number two in the world and number one in Australia and Asia Pacific in Equileap’s Global Report on Gender Equality for the second year in a row.

Mirvac’s CEO & Managing Director, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, said maintaining the number one position in Australia is a testament to the continued focus on gender equality at Mirvac. “Our focus on gender diversity throughout the Group has not wavered and we are proud that our ongoing work in this area has been recognised in this way,” she said.

“2020 was a challenging year for us, as it was for most businesses around the world, and that has made it even more important for us to prioritise workplace flexibility and inclusive leadership alongside gender diversity. As part of our pandemic recovery we have introduced a new Flexibility Charter that goes even further to ensure that our people have access to a range of working options to suit their lifestyle.

“We report regularly against our targets for the number of women at Mirvac represented at all management levels and in our talent pipeline, including 50/50 recruitment shortlists for senior leadership roles. We have an ongoing investment in women’s mentoring programs and pay close attention to our gender pay parity analysis, where we have maintained a zero pay gap for like-for-like roles for the past five years.

“In addition to our standard 20 weeks paid parental leave and four weeks paid partner leave, we pay superannuation on periods of unpaid leave and we work with our people to make sure that flexibility is built into our parental leave programs. We are always looking for ways to improve and where we can introduce new industry-leading initiatives to achieve gender diversity. Our work in this space is ongoing and we are committed to leading the way,” said Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz.

This year, Equileap researched 3,700 companies globally and ranked them based on 19 gender equality criteria, including gender balance across the workforce, the gender pay gap, paid parental leave and non-discriminatory hiring and promotion, and supply chain safety. These participating companies are all publicly listed and have a market capitalisation of more than USD 2 billion.
