Seven Advisory managing director, Mary Delahunty discusses the Australian Superannuation system for women. This article features SDA national assistant secretary Julia Fox and Chair of Women in Super’s Policy Committee and Cbus Super’s group executive Robbie Campo.
“Superannuation as a system, just magnifies what happens in working life,” Delahunty said. “It’s a system that’s predicated on time in the workforce, and the amount of money that you earn while you’re in there. So that’s naturally going to have worse outcomes for people who take time out of the workforce, and when you’re in the workforce suffering from a gender pay gap.”
