Gender Equity

Data on gender equity in the sector and what we’re doing to improve the experiences of all employees.

Workplace gender equity is achieved when people can access and enjoy the same opportunities, resources and rewards regardless of their gender. Addressing gender inequity means actively applying measures to address disadvantage experienced by women.

It is also important to address gender equity through an intersectional lens considering the compounding biases women can face when they are treated differently because of their culture, language, race, ability, gender identity, sexuality, regionality and social status.

For the latest data on gender equity in the NSW public sector read the State of the NSW Public Sector and Workforce Profile reports.
