The Commission for Gender Equality in the Public Sector has released its final template for reporting on workforce data components of workplace gender audit results.
The final template replaces the previous template for indicative workforce reporting.
In a statement, the Commission said Agencies should use the final Workforce Reporting Template to submit the workforce data component of their workplace gender audit results, alongside their Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP).
“The Workforce Reporting Template includes step-by-step instructions,” the Commission said.
“These should be read in conjunction with the revised Workplace gender audit 2021 – Guidance for defined entities, available on the workplace gender auditing page,” it said.
The Commission said additional resources were available on its website, on a new support page dedicated to helping Agencies to use the audit reporting templates.
It said the new page would be regularly updated with troubleshooting tips and frequently asked questions.
The Commission said the collection of workforce data allowed Organisations to see where gender inequality was persisting; decide what actions to take; and measure what was or was not working to address inequality.
“The Commission for Gender Equality in the Public Sector can also use the data to assess workplace gender equality across Victoria, ensure State-wide policy development is evidence-driven and measure progress over time,” it said.
