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?
