Guide for Evaluation

This guide will support defined entities to evaluate their own gender pay gap and identify areas for improvement using data from the first workplace gender audit and subsequent progress audits.

The gender pay gap in Victoria has always been an issue that prevents women and gender diverse people achieving equality. The introduction of the Gender Equality Act 2020 and the establishment of Victoria’s first Commission for Gender Equality in the Public Sector has meant that the public sector, councils and universities (known as defined entities), now have a legal obligation to promote gender equality in their policies, programs and services and take action to achieving workplace gender equality.

One component of this is to report against their gender pay gap.
