How to have YourSay

The full participation of women and girls in all areas of society is important for the wellbeing of our whole community. Gender equality benefits everyone.

We all have the power to improve gender equality and we are most effective when government, local organisations and the community work together.

The ACT Women’s Plan 2016-26 is an ambitious 10 year plan to create an ACT that values and respects women and girls and commits to achieving gender equality. It is being implemented through a series of 3 year action plans. The First Action Plan is complete and the Second Action Plan will end in 2022.

We are now looking towards the final action plan under the ACT Women's Plan, the Third Action Plan. The Third Action Plan will aim to expand on existing work to achieve gender equality and identify areas where more work is needed.

For more information about the Third Action Plan, explore the We are looking at section below. Get involved by:

Your responses to the surveys will be anonymous and will help the ACT Government better understand the perspectives and experiences of people of all genders.

We need to receive your contributions by no later than 5pm Tuesday 28 February 2023. We will consider your input as it is received, so we encourage early submissions.

Who we want to hear from

Women, girls and people of all genders are encouraged to join out consultation for the Third Action Plan to help shape the ACT Government’s future work towards gender equality.

The ACT Government recognises the importance of responding to the experiences of people of all genders, ages, sexualities, cultural backgrounds, people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds and people with disability. To make sure we continue to break down barriers to accessing services and support, we encourage Canberrans from all walks of life to participate in consultation and share their views on the Third Action Plan.
