Gender equality

In March 2021, the Victorian Gender Equality Act 2020 came into effect. The Act promotes, encourages and facilitates the achievement of gender equality within Victorian communities and organisations. It introduces new responsibilities for certain Victorian employers to implement, monitor and report on progress towards achieving gender equality in their workplace.

The Latrobe Regional Hospital Gender Equality Working Group is pleased to share a recently developed action plan which will inform the next steps to creating an environment and culture where diversity and equality are embedded.

The action plan is the result of 12 months work behind the scenes, incorporating insights on matters relating to diversity and inclusion – both as it relates to gender, and more broadly within our workforce. The working group conducted a detailed workplace gender equality audit, drawing from a number of sources including de-identified workforce and payroll information, consultation with staff and unions and feedback gleaned through the 2021 People Matter Survey.

The findings of the audit were grouped into five strategic priorities for LRH:

  • understanding the collective identity of our workforce
  • providing flexibility in the workplace
  • working towards pay equity
  • equitable recruitment and career development
  • building an inclusive culture.

The action plan drills down on each of these pillars and makes a firm and positive commitment towards achieving greater gender equality in the workplace. It’s an exciting piece of work, and one that offers diverse and interesting opportunities for staff to get involved in further developing LRH as a workplace that both embraces and celebrates diversity and equality.

Our tax time appeal for mums-to-be

Help us bring the next generation of Gippslanders into the world safely. Support our appeal to purchase a new ultrasound machine.

The latest ultrasound equipment will provide our obstetricians and midwives with superior imaging quality of an unborn baby to monitor their growth and health. If we can pick up on changes in a baby's development, we may be in a better position to prevent complications during birth.
