Duty to promote gender equality

Find out about your duty to promote gender equality under the Act.

Achieving gender equality will lead to tangible social and economic benefits for Victoria.

To promote gender equality, defined entities must apply a gender lens to their work when developing policies and programs and delivering services to Victorians. They must take positive steps towards achieving gender equality when these policies, programs and services will significantly impact the public.

Along with the gender impact assessments, this duty will ensure the public sector, local councils and universities make lasting and genuine progress towards gender equality in our community.
