Diversity, equity and inclusion
As we pursue gender equality, we must first embrace a culture of equity, which enables achievement and success for people of all genders by providing tools and resources to help overcome obstacles they may encounter.
Adopting an equity mindset supports all people to reach their full potential and helps build a better future.
International Women’s Day is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women and girls around the world, but to also consider how we accelerate the further change needed to build a better, more equitable future.
Macquarie Group Managing Director and CEO Shemara Wikramanayake and the United States Ambassador to Australia, Caroline Kennedy, held an event to mark International Women’s Day 2023.
Their discussion focused on gender equity and the systems and structures needed to support it, and the role of education in ensuring women are represented in future-focused areas.
We are committed to achieving more balanced gender representation at all levels across our organisation and are proud of our progress. We employ more women and gender diverse people than ever before, but there is always more we can do.
A key focus is developing our internal and external female talent pipelines by enhancing our recruitment processes and providing programs and policies that support gender equity in our workplace.
We continue to work hard to make our industry a place where women feel they belong and can thrive.
Through actively participating in initiatives, we work to support, inspire and educate women and girls, helping them to deliver to their full potential.

It’s vital for women to be represented in future-focused areas and to be involved in driving change in critical areas of need – such as climate change. Without the equal representation of women in the development and implementation of solutions to these issues, we are restricting our scope of ideas from the outset.”
