Gender equality is a priority issue for the Tasmanian Government. In early 2018, a new Tasmanian Women’s Strategy will be launched, building on the achievements of the Tasmanian Women’s Plan 2013-2018.
Since the release of the Tasmanian Women’s Plan in 2013, there has been an increased focus and interest on the issue of gender equality in Australia. This has included nationally-led efforts to address violence against women and the gender pay gap, as well as recognition and promotion of the achievements of women.
We have seen many positive changes, but there is still much more to do.
The new Women’s Strategy will be a three-year plan to address the inequality experienced by women and girls in Tasmania.
It will focus on four priority areas for action:
These priority areas align with gender equality work and initiatives being progressed by the Australian Human Rights Commission, the United Nations and the Australian and other state and territory governments. In developing the new Strategy, we will draw on lessons learnt from successful initiatives in other jurisdictions and be informed by new research and evidence.
To ensure our approach to gender quality and identified priorities are ‘on track’ and relevant, we want to hear from you!
We invite individuals to have their say through an online survey; and both individuals and organisations are welcome to provide written submissions.
One way to have your say is by completing the survey.
Survey participants can also enter to win their choice of a $100 Coles Myer or iTunes gift card.
There is no set format for written submissions. However, you may wish to consider the following questions in relation to the four priority areas for action:
The closing date for surveys and submissions is Friday 13 October 2017.
