That’s why in this Budget we’ve provided $13 million to implement this Act, including:
- Establishing the Office of the Gender Equality Commissioner, ensuring effective administration and implementation of the Gender Equality Act 2020.
- Developing and maintaining a reporting platform for in scope entities to facilitate defined entities’ submission of Gender Equality Action Plans and progress reports.
This Budget also invests $38 million to continue the Government's Respectful Relationships program in Victorian schools. This program promotes and models respectful behaviour, and teaches our children how to build healthy relationships.
We are committing a substantial investment to help women recover from this pandemic, with funding to support economic security, employment and gender equality.
