CEW welcomes Federal Government’s childcare announcement as positive step to increase women’s workforce participation

Chief Executive Women (CEW) today welcomed the Federal Treasurer’s funding announcement to increase access to childcare as an important step towards helping more women participate in the workforce.

CEW has long advocated for greater accessibility to affordable childcare to enable greater workforce participation for women.

CEW President Sam Mostyn said the cost of childcare is a significant barrier for women returning to work and their career progression.

“We welcome today’s announcement as an important initial step towards more women participating in the workforce and as a smart investment in the future use of the entire talent pool across the country,” said Ms Mostyn.
