Women's Agenda: Confusion and apathy surrounds Australia's 2025 commitment to gender equality

03 Jun 2017 2:39 PM | Jean Murray (Administrator)

In 2014, when we ended a thirty year tradition of releasing a women’s impact statement with the Federal Budget,   Australia committed to reducing our workforce participation gender gap by 25% by 2025 at the G20 in Brisbane.  In 2017, we are seeing an Office for Women that doesn’t seem to have much capability in managing it, and a Minister for Women who doesn’t appear particularly interested in it.  So who  is responsible for  reducing the workforce participation gender gap? https://womensagenda.com.au/latest/eds-blog/confusion-apathy-surrounds-2025-commitment-gender-equality/
