Description

At this Gender Equality Network event, we explored social attitudes to gender in Australia. The From Girls to Men report by the 50/50 by 2030 Foundation examines the attitudes of boys, girls, men and women to equality. At DCA’s Gender Equality Network, Virginia Haussegger AM –Director of the 50/50 by 2030 Foundation and BroadAgenda's Chief Editor at the University of Canberra’s Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis (IGPA) presented the findings of the report and explored why these attitudes exist and what policy interventions could engage more men in the gender equality movement. DCA’s CEO, Lisa Annese, continued the discussion about the findings and their implications for the workplace with a guest panel including: Hunter Johnson, CEO & Founder, The Man Cave Trish Bergin, Head, Office for Women, Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet Jenna Price, Columnist for the Sydney Morning Herald and the Canberra Times, academic at UTS, and Dr Pia Rowe, Research Associate and Co-Editor, BroadAgenda.
