Governance, reporting and key terms
This Strategy will be overseen by an interdepartmental committee, which takes a whole-of-government perspective on the issues covered. The committee will review progress against these commitments, identify emerging issues and help shape responses to emerging needs. The agency representatives on the committee will report progress directly to their relevant Secretary.
The NSW Government has committed to requiring government agencies to develop women’s action plans. These plans will outline a strategy to improve the delivery of services to women, as well as how the agency will address gender equality and women’s economic outcomes within its own workforce. Women’s action plans will be reviewed by the Audit Office of NSW every 2 years and made publicly available.
Detail provided in the plans will be used to inform reporting against success measures, which will outline our progress towards gender equality in NSW. Progress will be published annually.
