Gender Equality Network - Unleashing the power of gender equality: local & global perspectives
At DCA's next Gender Equality Network sponsored by KPMG we explored gender equality from both a local and global perspective.
In this special double bill Gender Equality Network, we heard from two amazing speakers who provided new insights into ways to harness the power of gender equality, both from an Australian and global perspective:
- Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins discussed her key priorities, including the prevention of violence against women and girls, enhancing women’s economic security and empowerment as well as guiding diversity in leadership across Australian workplaces, education and sporting institutions.
- Professor Emerita Linda Haas from the Indiana University in the United States is an expert on gender, family policy, families and work in post-industrialised societies. She explored the (leading practice) Swedish experience of promoting and enabling shared care and gender equality, as well as lessons for Australia in terms of possible changes to government and corporate/organisational policy and practice.
This network, free and exclusively to DCA members, is a quarterly event series designed to explore leading practice on gender diversity programs and to assist members in their preparations to meet reporting requirements on gender.
