Gender Equality Action Plan (workforce facing)


Monash Council has developed a Gender Equality Action Plan, which is a workforce facing Plan that sets out high level key objectives and actions to ensure that Council continues to exceed its obligations under the Gender Equality Act 2020.

This Plan is aligned to the Council Plan 2021-2025, our Gender Equity Framework (community facing) and the Monash Health and Wellbeing Plan 2021-2025. It also links with our internal Strategic Workforce Plan to uplift workplace diversity, inclusion and equity.

To drive and deliver on gender equality across our organisation, we are committed to:

  • Leading by example to create a gender equitable workplace
  • Providing our workforce with the education and the necessary capability to promote and support gender equity
  • Recognising and acknowledging that advancing gender equality is a shared responsibility and we believe that we should have equal access to opportunities and be treated with dignity, respect and fairness
  • Taking an intersectional approach to implementing gender equality, acknowledging that gender inequality does not impact all people in the same way
  • Building on our existing knowledge and experience to ensure we understand how people of different sexes and genders experience our workplace so we know how we can best support them
  • Ensuring that people feel safe to raise grievances without fear of retribution
  • Focusing on gathering and acting on employee feedback, holding ourselves and each other accountable for positive and long lasting change
