GOTAFE has outlined its ongoing commitment to gender equality and respect with the announcement of their Gender Equality Action Plan, which focuses on improving experience for people of all genders.

The Gender Equality Action Plan was announced on Tuesday, 8 March coinciding with International Women’s Day. The plan outlines the many strategies that GOTAFE will take to ensure the needs of people of GOTAFE, regardless of gender, are met and are provided with a safe and inclusive place to work.

“GOTAFE is committed to our Social Justice Charter and you can’t have social justice, or inclusion, without gender equality,” GOTAFE CEO Travis Heeney said.

“This work is critical for embedding a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone within our diverse and vibrant community.”

Janelle Osborne, Director People and Culture at GOTAFE, said the Gender Equality Action Plan will guide leadership and participation of people of all genders.

“We will continue to embed the universal principles of equity, fairness, and respect into all aspects of GOTAFE’s operations, systems, and infrastructure,” she said.

“The Gender Equality Action Plan, being intersectional in nature, builds on GOTAFE’s historical support of diversity and inclusion while explicitly focusing on and addressing gender inequality.

“GOTAFE is known for fostering a safe and inclusive community where people of all genders have an equal opportunity to embrace their full potential.”
