No single policy change will close the gender super gap. A holistic approach is imperative if we want to achieve a fairer retirement income system, but each policy setting that we can implement will be a much-needed step towards equality in retirement.

The Women in Super Policy Committee has identified what we believe are the next six most important changes to our super system. We want to ensure that we are representing you, as a member, so are looking for your feedback on what you think the order of priority should be.

To celebrate this opportunity for change, we also want to invite you to the official launch of our Policy Campaign, where we will provide an overview of our asks, and a panel discussion of industry leaders and experts around what is required to improve gender equality in this space. The launch will feature:

  • Emily Millane: Senior Specialist, Right Lane Consulting
  • Robbie Campo: Chair, WIS Policy Committee | CEO, ESSSuper
  • Sally Collins: Chief Financial Officer, HESTA
  • Moderated by Kara Keys: Chair, Women in Super
