Women in Super (WIS) is a not for profit national organisation founded by women working in the all-profit-to-members superannuation sector.
With over 1,500 members across Australia, we believe in connecting, inspiring and supporting women in the finance and superannuation sector to reach their potential, grow their career and achieve their aspirations.
For 20 years WIS has been committed to improving access to superannuation for women through advocating for better retirement outcomes and collaborating with industry partners on research projects and advocacy campaigns.
WIS members created and have continued to organise the Mother's Day Classic, a fun walk/run held across Australia on Mother’s Day. To date we have proudly raised $27.4 million for breast cancer research.
Women in Super has led a collective stance taken by the superannuation industry against family and domestic violence. The following organisations are doing what they can to reduce family violence and to assist those who have experienced or are experiencing it by signing the Domestic Violence Charter:
