Release of the Northern Territory Gender Equality Action Plan
The Northern Territory Gender Equality Action Plan 2022-2025 is now available.
On Friday the Northern Territory (NT) Government released the Gender Equality Action Plan 2022-2025. This action plan acknowledges the impact of gender inequity and highlights the fundamental importance that gender equality plays in creating an inclusive, safe and thriving Northern Territory for all.
The Northern Territory’s first Gender Equality Action Plan is based on the Northern Territory Gender Equality Statement of Commitment (GESC) released in 2020. The action plan is the first to be developed from consultations with Territorians from 2019 to 2021. The GESC will be implemented through a series of equality action plans.
This first action plan focuses on the importance of creating an inclusive environment in community engagement, health and wellbeing, safety, economic security and leadership. The Northern Territory Gender Equality Action Plan highlights the NT Government’s approach to achieving a welcoming environment where all people are treated with dignity, respect and fairness and where all voices are heard.
