Women in leadership

The appointment rate of women to the Senior Leadership Pipeline has fallen as a result of a large number of male appointments to our Group Operations function.


  • Senior Leadership Pipeline refers to employees in Management Groups A, B, ELT and ET, in accordance with AGL’s Position Framework.

  • The appointment rate for FY16 onwards reflects external appointments only. For FY19, the internal appointment rate was around 46% (FY18: 41%). The internal appointment rate is approximate only, as there are occasional differences in the classification of appointments and transfers during organisational restructures.

  • AGL Macquarie employees included from FY16.

  • With the implementation of Workday Human Resources Information System in FY19, the AGL Position Framework was refreshed with Hay Reference Levels replacing AGL work levels, and the adoption of an overarching management level structure. Under the new structure, the former Senior Leadership Pipeline definition of 'Level 12 roles and above' used up to and including FY18 directly correlates with Hay Reference Levels 18 and above, which are encapsulated in Management Groups A, B, ELT and ET.

  • Internal appointments reflect promotions as recorded in Workday from 1 November 2018. Data prior to 1 November is not available due to failure of externally hosted recruitment solution.
