UBS and Gender Equality

UBS Australia is proud to have been awarded the EOWA Employer of Choice for Women citation for the last ten years. This year the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) has introduced a new WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation. UBS is very supportive of the ambitions of the WGEA, namely to encourage, recognise and promote active commitment to achieving gender equality in Australian workplaces.

UBS's strategy to promote diversity and gender equality is based on the following key objectives:

  • Increasing the representation of women at all levels, particularly within senior management
  • Increasing the retention of diverse talent
  • Creating an inclusive work environment which encourages all employees, regardless of gender or background, to develop and perform
  • Promoting gender pay equity and ensuring that employees are rewarded and recognised equitably based on their contribution

The UBS Australian management committee, under the leadership of the CEO are committed to addressing this issue. At UBS Australia, we believe that it is fundamentally important that we continue to work to improve gender equality, for the benefit of our employees, and just as importantly, for our clients and stakeholders.
