Gender equality is a basic human right.  Everyone has the right to enjoy their lives without discrimination and with access to the same opportunities.

Wyndham City Council has developed Towards Equality to support the achievement of our vision of a safe, inclusive community where all people, regardless of their gender, have equal access to, resources, power and opportunities, are treated with dignity, respect and fairness, in a life free from all forms of violence.

Towards Equality and its associated 2020-2021 Action Plan, sets out how we will achieve our vision and establishes actions that Council will take to build an inclusive, connected city by inspiring the community, strengthening our internal priorities and challenging outdated ways of thinking.

Towards Equality and a one-year 2020- 2021 Action Plan has been developed following extensive community, partner agencies and staff consultation. Following the implementation of the one-year Action Plan, a four-year Action Plan will be developed to commence by October 2021 to align with the requirements of the Victorian Gender Equality Legislation. This will be informed by additional consultation and engagement.
