The MAV hosted a consultation session for senior council officers to inform the development of Victorian gender equality legislation.

Event Description

In December 2016, the Victorian Government released Safe and Strong (PDF - 1.88MB), Victoria’s first Gender Equality Strategy.

A key commitment of Safe and Strong is the development of gender equality legislation.

The Office of Prevention and Women’s Equality, in the Department of Health and Human Services, will be conducting a first phase of consultation workshops with key stakeholders to inform the development of Victorian gender equality legislation in December 2017 – January 2018.

The MAV will host a specific consultation for senior council officers on Wednesday 24 January 11am – 12.30pm on level 11, followed by light refreshments.
