Gender Equality Action Plan

Our Gender Equality Action Plan 20212025 will guide us to achieve intersectional gender equality at the Commission

Why was this action plan created?

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission recognises gender equality as a human right, and we endeavour to promote and protect this in and outside of our organisation. 

Victoria’s Gender Equality Act 2020 requires the Victorian public sector to take positive action towards achieving gender equality within the workplace through policies, programs and services. 

Our plan is our responsibility to ensure gender equality within our workplace. We will ensure that all staff within our workplace: 

  • are free from gender stereotypes 
  • do not experience sexual harassment or assault 
  • are paid equally, recognised fairly for their work, and given equal promotion and employment opportunities. 

This action plan outlines how we will achieve intersectional gender equality.

Gender Equality Action Plan

Our three core outcomes in the plan were underpinned by the results of our workplace gender audit and analysis and internal consultation.  

These strategies are designed to be mutually reinforcing and the measures will help us monitor our progress in achieving intersectional gender equality and create an inclusive workplace free from discrimination and sexual harassment.

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission stands on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation. We recognise their cultures, histories, diversity and deep connection to this land and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Sovereignty has never been ceded – this land always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
