Eastern Health’s Gender Equality Action Plan acknowledges the barriers to diversity, equality and inclusion and uses this understanding to introduce meaningful actions to address gender inequities for our people.

Our Gender Equality Action Plan was informed by auditing our current state and consulting with our people to create a blueprint for our actions and priorities over the next four years, and ongoing. The Plan aligns with Eastern Health’s values – in particular the value of Respect – and the central tenet enables an inclusive and equitable employee experience that in turn will optimise our patients’ experience.

Eastern Health’s Gender Equality Action Plan recognises that Gender equality is an important social and economic goal, and is an Organisation wide commitment to foster a gender equitable workplace.
