Inquiry into economic equity for Victorian women

The Inquiry into economic equity for Victorian women was established to find solutions for problems such as unequal pay and workplace barriers to women‘s success.

The Inquiry considered the extent, nature and magnitude of workplace and economic inequity for women in Victoria, and made recommendations for suitable policy options for the Victorian Government to redress the systemic disadvantage for women, highlighted by the impact of COVID-19 on workplace and economic equity for women in Victoria.

Prominent business woman and community leader Ms Carol Schwartz AO chaired the Inquiry, and was accompanied by Ms Liberty Sanger and Mr James Fazzino on the Panel. The Panel members were chosen for their relevant skills and experience in gender equity, law and economics.

The final report and Government’s response were released in September 2022 and are available on the Victorian Government website.
