Description of the charities activities and outcomes
AGEC's overall mission is to achieve gender equality in Australia by advocacy and research and providing a forum for broad-based consultation and collaboration in the community. This year AGEC has continued to grow its membership base and launched a gender equality Manifesto to guide our initiatives and campaigns. AGEC continued to build strong working relationships with the Workforce Gender Equality Agency, the Human Rights Commission, and the Office of Women and forge strong alliances with a range of industry and other like-minded organisations including the Male Champions of Change, Chief Executive Women and the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD). Key activities during the year included –
● AGEC’s Gender Equality Manifesto as a comprehensive statement on what a gender equal Australia would look like with 12 key domains of gender equality
● Media coverage and government interest in AGEC’s insights from Hands Up for Gender Equality research on the powerful influence of gender norms in our school system on career choices of girls and boys.
● Launch of the AGEC Consulting Directory as a resource assisting organisations to implement gender equality in the workplace.
● Participation in Human Rights Commission Workplace Sexual Harassment Inquiry and the Male Champions of Change Disrupting the System initiative on workplace sexual harassment.
● Actively campaigning to support the passing of the NSW Reproductive Reform Bill and promoting Fair Agenda’s online tool to lobby Members of Parliament.
● Launch of the world-first Report on Workplace Gender Equality Best Practice in Australia in February 2020.
● Meetings with key Commonwealth and State leaders including the Minister for Women, the Hon Marise Payne and the Deputy Leader of the Opposition, the Hon Richard Marles.
