Until 13th November, economic Security4Women (eS4W) is seeking women’s views on their economic empowerment for an important report on the issue to the Australian Government.
Economic empowerment increases women’s access to economic resources and opportunities including jobs, financial services, property and other productive assets, skills development and market information.
eS4W is interested in what women consider should be the priorities for government to increase their ability to cope with changing conditions in the economy; their participation in paid work and their income in later life into retirement.
The report will present to government, the views, voices and issues of women in Australia, in relation to their economic wellbeing.
How to be involved
If you’re an organisation, hold face to face consultations with women stakeholders:
- Consultation kits are available at the economic security4women website
- Participants in consultations can also go to the online survey
Individuals are encouraged to do the online survey:
- The online survey will take approximately 10 minutes
- Online questions reflect issues raised in the Consultations
- The survey will also provide an opportunity for you to raise other issues and to identify your top 5 concerns about your long-term economic wellbeing.
To participate in the on-line survey, follow this link.
How the results will be used
Economic Security4Women and its member organisations are organising consultations and promoting an online survey to inform this report to the Australian Government.
The results will build on eS4W’s core issues of:
- Women and girls into non-traditional occupations and industries
- Workplace gender equality in the Small to Medium Enterprise sector
- Financial literacy: savings and investment (financial independence in retirement)
The results will also outline future areas of work for economic Security4Women into 2016-2019.
eS4W is one of five National Women’s Alliances established by the Office for Women in the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
