Gender Equity Quality Standards: A Resource for Organisations
These quality standards are designed to create awareness of gender equity and support organisations to work towards achieving a more equitable workplace for women and men. The guide includes an overview of the benefits of gender equity, GE laws, how to use the standards, and definitions. The guide is then organised into seven quality standards for gender equity in organisations: 1: Governance; 2: Capacity Building; 3: Culture; 4: Remuneration and Promotion; 5: Working conditions support flexibility for staff; 6: A workplace which is healthy, safe and free from violence; 7: Working with clients and customers. Under each standard, there is a list of 4-10 actions required to meet the standards (total of 45 practice and processes).
