Gender Parity Outdoor Workforce

Meeting: Parks and Recreation Committee 

Meeting date: 15 October 2020

Raised by: Deputy Lord Mayor Burnet

Question: I ask this question on behalf of Councillor Ewin:

At a recent site tour of the South Hobart depot, I recently spoke with staff who said there is only one woman employed at the site. I understand the Director is acutely aware of this imbalance, but I would like to know how can we be more proactive about working towards gender parity in our outdoor workforce.

1. Is there a formal strategy for this?

2. If not, what is the process for developing one?
