Gender audit guidelines for the government, community and health sectors
This tool is an introduction to gender audits designed for executive leaders, managers, coordinators and staff who have the responsibility to lead a gender audit process. It gives direction on how to set gender equity assessment standards within their organisation and the facilities, programs and services that they deliver to the broader community. The document has three main sections: 1. The role of the workplace in preventing violence against women - including a gender analysis of the Australian workplace, the benefits of becoming a gender equitable workplace, and how inequity in the workplace contributes to violence against women; 2. Gender audits – introduction to gender audits, their purpose, forms, goals and key steps; 3. Sample gender audit tools – including an action plan template, question development guide, and where and how to conduct the audit.
