The Glass Ceiling Index

Team Name: 


How thick is the glass ceiling in Australia? Women have broken through … right? Let look at the facts …. Across all occupations, a man is 4.6 times more likely to reach a high paying role, will earn $24k more than a woman per annum and, alarmingly, this income gap is widening.



There is nothing new about the idea of equal pay for equal work.


Team Name: 

I'm a student of data science that can't code. I wanted to join some data sets together to inform the public about NSW local government areas (LGAs).
