  A Slice Above the Rest? Pizza Could Earn UNESCO World Heritage Status The cheesy pie would join Turkish coffee, Croatian gingerbread, and other delicious culinary creations on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.Launched in 2006, UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list recognizes traditional practices and activities around the world—including music, food, and dance—that shape national identity. Delicious additions have included Turkish coffee, Croatian gingerbread, Japanese washoku, the Mediterranean diet, and the cuisines of Mexico and France. Not just any food can be added to the list, however: UNESCO honors (and aims to preserve) only traditional cooking methods that were pioneered by a single nation.

Compared to average Australians , CEOs earn an astronomical amount, watch the pay gap tick over in real time .

The stark finding comes from corporate adviser Conrad Liveris, who has examined the remuneration of executives at Australia's 100 biggest public companies.

But that's not all.

Here's how the gap between total average remuneration for ASX100 chief executives compares to average weekly earnings.

Mr Liveris says Australian corporations' approach to executive remuneration is outdated, as it's based on a model created for corporations in the 1980s and 1990s.

"It's barely been reviewed for decades even though the business environment has changed.

"In this time of change and innovation, decision makers need to better analyse the contributions being made to their corporation's performance and examine how they can share the benefits more widely."

CEOs now earn 78 times more than Australian workers - ABC News ( Australian Broadcasting Corporation).

Equality Trust calls on government to force firms to report pay gap between highest-paid and average employee.

Australians' wages are stubbornly stagnant, but it's a quite different story for CEOs.

Over the past couple of years, CEO remuneration has climbed 46 per cent more, year on year, than average Australian incomes.

Mr Liveris believes corporations need to align increases in executive remuneration to Australia's Wage Price Index, in an effort to win back trust in the country's biggest businesses.

You might assume that women who become CEOs have broken through the glass ceiling. But even at this level, there remains a large gap in earnings.

And keep in mind: there are only seven women leading ASX100 companies.

The highest-earning woman CEO is Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz from Mirvac, who took home a total package of $5.3 million.

That compares to Alan Joyce from Qantas, the top-earning man who is earning $24.6 million.

Notably, though, some women executives who hold other positions are out-earning their fellow CEOs. For example:

"The highest paid men in the ASX100 tend to be group chief executives, while women tend to lead business units," Mr Liveris explains.

Alan Joyce from Qantas may have received the highest total remuneration package, but Wesfarmers' Richard Goyder took home the highest salary.
