National Strategy to Achieve Gender Equality

The Minister for Women has launched a public consultation for the upcoming National Strategy to Achieve Gender Equality:

The National Strategy to Achieve Gender Equality (the Strategy) will guide whole of community action to help make Australia one of the best countries in the world for equality between women and men. It is an important mechanism to elevate and prioritise actions that will achieve gender equality.

We know that government plays an important role – the Strategy will help us identify where Australian government effort should be focused. But we also know that government acting alone cannot achieve gender equality – we need to work together across government, business and communities, and in schools, universities, TAFEs and work places.

The Government wants to understand the Australian community’s vision for gender equality and support a conversation about the priorities and actions to get us there, and how we could work together to achieve this.

DCA will be making a submission in response to the discussion paper, with a specific focus on workplace gender equality, and would like to hear from members to ensure that our submission reflects your views.

Individual responses to this survey will not be identified. We are, however, asking for respondents’ contact details so we can ensure that responses are from DCA member organisations.

This survey will close on 28 March 2023 so that DCA can complete our submission by the closing date of 19 April 2023. A copy of DCA’s submission will be made available on our website after this date.
