Action for Gender Equality Partnership

16 February 2021

WHIN is delighted to be a key partner in the Action for Gender Equality Partnership (Gender Equity Victoria Partnership) which is one of the Panel of Providers approved to support the implementation of the Victorian Gender Equality Act 2020. The Panel is comprised of 24 gender equality experts that will offer tailored support to organisations to support them to meet their obligations under the Act which comes into effect on March 31.

Prescribed organisations will be required to conduct gender impact assessments, collect gendered workplace data and develop and report on a gender equality action plan every four years. WHIN is approved to support these organisations in areas such as gender impact assessment (GIA) and the development and implementation of strategies to improve gender equality in the workplace.

We are very much looking forward to supporting our partners and community in realising the benefits of gender equality. The implementation of the Gender Equality Act is a unique opportunity for  us to work with stakeholders on our shared commitment to create gender equal communities that reduce discrimination and violence towards against women.
