100 Days for Change is a Women & Leadership Australia movement which promotes gender equity in the workplace. The initiative will run from the 1st of July until the 8th of October with the intention of accelerating individuals and organisations to increase gender equity in their workplaces. During the 100 days, organisations can make pledges, announce their own initiatives and celebrate their achievements. The objective of the initiative is to catalyse people into making achievable and practical changes to improve gender equity.

Joining hundreds of business leaders and influencers across the country is EY’s Oceania CEO Tony Johnson shares his company’s 100 Days for Change pledge. In the video below, Johnson shares the firms commitment to gender equity and announces the EY’s new ‘Glidepath to Leadership’ programs across Oceania. The programs intend to support the career development of EY’s high potential female leaders.

EY have been heavily active in promoting gender equity around Australia and the globe having last year announced their target for gender parity – 50% of the firms senior leadership to be women – globally by 2030. The move made waves around the world prompting the other Big Four accounting and consulting firms to follow suit. In Australia, the firm achieved this 12 years early, having recently changed their leadership team to represent a 50/50 gender split.
