Women in Super (WIS) is a not for profit national organisation that provides opportunities and advocates for equal outcomes for women employed in the superannuation and financial services industries.
WIS provides opportunities through its events for members to develop broader professional and personal networks and fosters access to professional development (including training and education). WIS strongly supports and encourages equal participation of women at all levels within the sector and works with other organisations and stakeholders to achieve this.
WIS works on behalf of its members and women generally with government, MPs, unions, employer organisations, regulators, and superannuation funds to improve women’s retirement prospects and access to superannuation.
WIS initiated the Mother's Day Classic in 1998, a walk/run held across Australia on the second Sunday in May. To date we have proudly raised $19.8 million for breast cancer research.

Saving the LISC (Low Inome Superannuation Contribution) is a top priority for WIS. It is a vital measure to help women overcome the super savings gap. Please go to the website (www.keepsuperfair.com.au) or via the Save The LISC button above and GET ACTIVE by signing the online petition, emailing your local MP to encourage them to support the LISC and sharing with your social media networks. The Government has confirmed that it has no commitment to the LISC as a policy measure. Without it, about 1 in 2 working women and 80% of the female part-time workforce will receive a tax penalty for saving for their retirement.
