The not-for-profit organisation announced the appointment on Wednesday (16 March).

Jo Kowalczyk has been appointed as the new CEO for Women In Super and will join the network with over 15 years’ experience in “strategy, advocacy and delivering transformative change”.

Previously Ms Kowalczyk worked in the education sector as the compliance and operations manager for the NSW Teachers Federation for six years and at the National Tertiary Education Union.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jo as our new CEO,” Women In Super chair, Kara Keys, said.

“The gender super gap largely exists because of wage inequality and having spent her life advocating for working people in the education sector, Jo has a deep understanding of the structural policy barriers that we are trying to change.

“Jo is the ideal person to help Women in Super move forward our mission to improve the financial security of women in retirement.”

Last week, Australian fintech Super Fierce launched a new platform aimed at addressing the $30 trillion global gender wealth gap.

Super Fierce says the platform will initially focus on superannuation – given the 47 per cent super gap currently facing Australian women at retirement – and will aim to save women $100 million in lifetime superannuation fees by July 2022.
