Programmed managing director Chris Sutherland

Numbers focus in gender pay gap

Western Australia’s yawning gender pay gap can in part be contributed to young women forgoing maths in years 11 and 12, according to Programmed Maintenance Services managing director Christopher Sutherland, who today called for societal change to address the problem.

Mr Sutherland made the comments at a Committee for Economic Development of Australia function held in Perth on how to attract women, especially high schoolers into STEM, or the science, technology, engineering and maths disciplines.

“I do directly link the low percentage of girls doing ... maths in year 11 and 12 to the gender pay gap in WA,” Mr Sutherland said.
