GENDER EQUALITY IN AUSTRALIA: IMPACT ON SOCIAL, ECONOMIC & HEALTH OUTCOMES
Grant number: LP180100035 | Funding period: 2019 - 2023
This project aims to develop an innovative, Australian-specific multidimensional measure of gender equality. The project’s focus on conceptualising and measuring gender equality in the Australian context will address a significant barrier to the development, implementation and evaluation of targeted gender equality programs and policies. By partnering with government and industry representatives, this project will develop a baseline from which programs and policies can be measured. The project will also establish evidence about the effects of gender equality in relation to economic, social and wellbeing outcomes.
