EOIs sought for new Ministerial Council on Women's Equality

Calling for expressions of interest for a new Ministerial Council on Women’s Equality (the Council).

The Victorian Government is calling for expressions of interest for a new Ministerial Council on Women’s Equality (the Council).

The Council will provide expert advice to the Minister for Women and Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson, on the implementation of founding reforms and early actions outlined in Safe and Strong—Victoria’s first Gender Equality Strategy as well as future priorities for gender equality in Victoria.

It will also provide strategic and evidence-based advice on:

  • the development of an action plan to guide Victoria’s progress towards gender equality
  • a comprehensive outcomes framework to measure progress on the strategy, including the setting of additional gender equality targets for Victoria
  • development of strategies to build the capacity of the government, corporate, not-for-profit and community sectors to support gender equality
  • the need for broader consultation to enhance major policy initiatives in relation to gender equality.

Expressions of interest for the council close on Friday 31 March 2017 and are sought from anyone with gender equality expertise in legislative, budget and policy settings; education and training; work and economic security; leadership and participation; health, safety and wellbeing; sport and recreation; and media, arts and culture.
