The Challenge

Despite several decades of political commitment to equal opportunity, and policy initiatives aimed at increasing the representation of women in leadership and key decision-making roles across all levels of government and our public institutions, progress has been slow. Some would say ‘glacial’. Small gains have been celebrated and tepid targets reached, but many of these achievements remain patchy and vulnerable to the vagaries of political power and influence.

Our mission is to use evidence and activated research to drive cultural and structural change to achieve enduring gender equity in public leadership in Australia.
