About this Event

How can this event help you?

The Gender Equality Act 2020 is a once in a generation opportunity to improve gender equality in Victoria. Anyone who develops and reviews policies, programs or services that directly impact the public will play a critical role in undertaking Gender Impact Assessments (GIAs).

We intend to help enhance your knowledge and understanding on GIAs and provide you the opportunity to gain practical experience using a real-world example (case study) in a local government setting to apply the advice from the GIA Toolkit to unpack when to undertake a GIA, who should undertake them, and how to build internal mechanisms to improve gender equality practices within your workplaces.

What will it cover?

  • What are gender impact assessments (GIAs)?
  • What does the Gender Equality Act say about GIAs
  • How you conduct a gender impact assessment, using a real-world example

Who is presenting?

  • Women’s Health in the South East ( in conjunction with the Action for Gender Equality Partnership)
  • Commission for Gender Equality in the Public Sector

Who should attend?

This forum is open to anyone in prescribed entities (local government, tertiary education and community health services) who develop and review policies, programs or services that directly impact the public and are supporting the implementation of the requirements under the Gender Equality Act.


Free. Please register to attend this session.
