What are we doing?
The Workplace Equality and Respect Project builds upon the Workplace Accreditation Program that the Equal Opportunity Commission previously led from 2015-2017, where 19 South Australian State Government agencies achieved White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation. This three year, $350,000 per annum South Australian Workplace Equality and Respect project aims to strengthen gender equality and promote safe and respectful workplace cultures across the 24 participating agencies in the South Australian public sector.
The Project is utilising the Our Watch Workplace Equality and Respect Standards and aims to ensure that participating South Australian Public Sector agencies are equipped with the tools, knowledge and capacity to apply best-practicebest practice approaches to workplace gender equality and respect as part of preventing violence against women.
What have we achieved so far?
The 24 participating South Australian Government agencies have finalised their 12-month Gender Equality and Respect Action Plans that align with OurWatch’s Workplace Equality and Respect Standards.
What is next?
While this is not an ongoing project, agencies will continue to deliver commitments under the Gender Equality and Respect Action Plans developed as part of the Workplace Equality and Respect Project.
What difference will we make?
By addressing the underlying drivers or causes of gendered violence, the project will contribute to preventing violence against women.
