How you had YourSay:

To make sure women and girls can access what they need to thrive, we asked you to help us set priorities for the Second Action Plan 2020-22. The Second Action Plan is a part of the ACT Women’s Plan 2016-26.

The final Second Action Plan 2020-22 launched in March 2020, and is available on the Office for Women website.

Between 3 October and 7 November 2019, you provided feedback by completing the survey. The survey listed the five focus areas for the Plan, and potential priorities under each focus area. We also received feedback from attendees at the ACT Women's Summit on 14 October 2019.

We have released a What We Heard report that sets out the feedback we received.

Your contribution helped ensure that we put our efforts towards the most important issues for women and girls in the ACT.

Your feedback helped us know how to make sure that women and girls can access what they need to thrive. We’ve read all of your submissions and are kept your feedback front of mind as we finalised the Second Action Plan.

We have had direct engagement with individuals and community sector representatives who represent different ACT communities, including vulnerable communities and minority groups, to ensure their views are reflected.
