For the past 3 years, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) has managed Australia's Gender Equality Indicators in their Aristotle Metadata Registry to improve the interpretation of WGEA data published through data.gov.au.
The WGEA collects data from organisations across Australia to measure pay and renumeration differences between employees and the gender composition of corporate boards. This data is then used to calculate a range of indicators that provide a snapshot of corporate gender equality, and are used to measure the progress towards closing the gender pay gap.
How We Helped
The WGEA collects workplace data to measure and track the performance of organisations, industries, and the entire Australian economy. This data is in turn used to compare the performance of Australian gender equality policies with other nations.
We've developed the Aristotle Metadata Registry to support international standards for the conceptual development of indicators. This ensures that the WGEA can continuously improve the interpretation of their indicators and frameworks by providing metadata so that users of data can compare across sectors and generate richer, evidence-based insights.
The Aristotle Metadata Registry has been developed to align with the same standards as common data registries like the CKAN Data Registry which powers national data portals like data.gov.au. By linking their data with their metadata, the WGEA can connect metadata definitions with data to ensure that users have the right information needed to accurately and correctly interpret and analyse data.
To meet the data soverignty and privacy requirements of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, our cloud experts deployed the Aristotle Metadata Registry using our Australian hosting.
Our enterprise-grade sevice level agreements meant that the WGEA enjoy a secure, scalable and stable cloud-hosting and were able to deliver a registry with greater than 99.9% uptime to their own stakeholders.
