The Toward Gender Parity: Women on Boards Initiative aims to address the lack of gender diversity on boards and assist women to become board-ready.
The Queensland Government values diversity and recognises the benefits to women, and to Queensland overall, of women’s achievement. The Queensland Budget 2016-17 includes significant allocations to advance gender equality across the four priority areas of the Queensland Women’s Strategy 2016-21.
The whole-of-government Queensland Women's Strategy outlines the Queensland Government vision for women and girls with emphasis on gender equality and related issues across participation and leadership, economic security, safety, and health and wellbeing.
Queensland Women 2015 provides an evidence base to report and assess equality of outcomes between women and men in Queensland.
The Office for Women is part of the Queensland Government and plays a central role in carrying out the government's vision for the women of Queensland.
