Gender equality

Our role is to create a workplace where all employees can reach their full potential.

Research shows that barriers to gender equality in the workplace are real. We are working to understand the barriers in our organisation.

Our values

We want to make sure gender equality is a strong part of our culture.

To us gender equality means:

  • we consider and equally value the behaviours, aspirations and needs of all genders
  • rights, responsibilities, and opportunities don’t depend on an individual’s gender

We support this through agreed strategies and targets that we work towards.

Our strategies

Our department was established on 1 February 2020. Before this, we were the:

  • Department of Agriculture
  • Department of the Environment and Energy (Environment portfolio)

We are still updating our corporate information. This includes our people strategies. We will make this information available soon.
