Gender Equality Action Plan

VGSO's Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP) sets out a progressive framework for action for driving sustainable systemic and behavioural change to achieve gender equality across our organisation.

VGSO's collective commitment as captured in the GEAP is "Together we stand committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and belonging for all, respectful engagement and meaningful participation." It espouses our long term vision for creating meaningful and sustainable shifts that go beyond just gender equality, towards achieving celebrating and embracing diversity in all its forms in everything we do.

The GEAP is underpinned by the Gender Equality Act 2020 (the Act) which strives to improve workplace gender equality in the Victorian Public Sector, universities and local councils. VGSO's GEAP provides a unique opportunity to build on current initiatives toward fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace for all our employees. It recognises and builds on the guiding principles of gender equality as espoused in the Act.

VGSO's GEAP was co-designed with our employees, generating a deeper understanding of the experiences of our employees and the potential barriers to realising the gender equality principles at VGSO. The resultant action plan outlines targeted strategies spanning across our workplace systems, capability and culture that will enable us to implement meaningful change.
