Anna, Beth and Lauren are students in Year 10 from Our Lady of Mercy College who have been conducting research for a project on the issue of Gender Equality. They decided to conduct a series of interviews to consider what can be done to raise awareness of the importance of gender equality in the workplace. This is an outline of the questions they have been asking:
– What are the areas that needs to be addressed, and possible approaches we can carry out to address these issues?
– Do you think the implication of government policies and quotas can effectively address the issue of gender inequality in the workplace?
– What do you think is the most effective way of raising awareness and education on the issue?
– In your personal opinion, what group of people should be actively taking the most action on the issue of gender inequality in the workforce (Government, employers or general public).
We hope they come to ‘My Vote My Voice’ at the Parliament of Victoria on the morning of Friday 1 September to tell us what they decided about these questions.
