Equity management strategies in the Australian private sector
French, Erica & Maconachie, Glenda (2003) Equity management strategies in the Australian private sector. In Brown, Alan (Ed.) Proceedings of the 17th Annual Conference of ANZAM: Surfing the Waves: Management Challenges, Management Solutions, 2-5 December 2003, Perth, WA.
This paper outlines the methods and outcomes of a study into equity management strategies in Australian private sector organisations reporting to the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency. Reports from 1976 organisations indicate eleven key factors characterising equity management in Australia. The study highlights differences within previously identified social structural policies, temperamental and opportunity policies and identifies a further policy type, categorised as “support policies”. Differences have also been identified in relation to distribution structures, suggesting that gender is not the sole consideration in determining equity management strategies. The principle of distribution also figures strongly in equity management implementation.
