Gender Equality in Australia
At TafeCourses, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue their goals in life, regardless of identity or background. But equal economic opportunity is still a far way off.
Australia, despite being a wealthy nation, lags behind in gender equality at just number 39 in the world. Our gender pay gap has decreased, but it’s still unacceptably high. And the main cause, according to a KPMG analysis, is sex discrimination.
It’s time to get real about Australia’s gender pay gap and crunch some numbers. Read on after the visual to get an overview of why the gender gap persists.

This infographic visualizes some data about pay gaps in Australia. The well-defined color palette creates a cohesive viewing experience for the reader. While not included in every opportunity, the data is often represented with visualizations. However, some of these aren't in the most easy-to-understand format or are missing some essential nuances (like scale or key) to ensure readability. The content is brief and relies on the data to tell the story — a great approach for this kind of information. The copy could benefit from a bit of consistency in application and additional context as needed. The infographic is well organized and keeps a viewer engaged, but with some missing nuances, data could be misinterpreted at a fast glance. We'd give this a D.
