The NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022 provides a whole-of-government and whole-of-community policy framework with the aim to improve the economic, social and physical wellbeing of women and girls across NSW.
The vision of the NSW Women’s Strategy is that women and girls in NSW have full access to opportunity and choice, their diversity is recognised, they are valued for their contribution and are able to participate in all aspects of life freely and safely.
The strategy identifies three priority areas for action:
- Economic opportunity and advancement
- Health and wellbeing
- Participation and empowerment.
The NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022 Year One Action Plan is the first in four annual action plans which will present initiatives under the three priority areas including agreed targets and outcomes to enable progress to be measured. These action plans allow flexibility to consider future actions as new ideas emerge or the needs of specific cohorts or communities are identified. The Year One Action Plan describes initiatives to be undertaken from the release of the strategy to June 2019.
The Year One Mid-Year Progress Report has just been released, which outlines the performance against each action in The NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022 Year One Action Plan. The highlights in this Report give an indication of the NSW Government’s progress towards improving the economic, social and physical wellbeing of women and girls across NSW.
