National awards and accreditation for local government

Welcome to 5050Vision

Councils for Gender Equity Program

This important program is the first national accreditation and awards program which encourages councils across Australia to address gender equity issues within the organisation and among their elected representatives.

The program has been designed to be accessed by all councils, regardless of their size, location and progress on gender equity. Councils can apply for accreditation at three levels - starting with Bronze, then Silver and working up to the prestigious, peer reviewed Gold Award.

The accreditation of your council as a 5050Vision employer will make it easier for you to attract, recruit and retain workers based on their abilities, skills and knowledge in a consistently fair workplace which offers and promotes work opportunities for all.  Award application processing costs apply, for further information please refer to Application Costs Table.
