The Queensland Government’s Gender Analysis Toolkit

The Queensland Government is committed to achieving gender equality. That’s why they have developed the Queensland Women’s Strategy 2016-21 (QWS).

The QWS Community Implementation Plan includes an initiative to create user-friendly online resources and a toolkit that all government and non-government organisations can access to support better gender analysis.

Gender analysis is an essential tool for gender considered policies, programs and services. Applying a ‘gender lens’ can help identify the different conditions that women and men face and the different effects that policies and programs may have on them because of their situations.

To assist in applying a ‘gender lens’, the Queensland Government developed the Gender Analysis Toolkit in 2009. The Toolkit was designed to build the Queensland public sector’s skills around gender mainstreaming, targeting all staff of government departments to integrate gender issues into their work.

It has been eight years since the release of this resource and in 2017 it is our intention to update this resource.

The updated Gender Analysis Toolkit is intended for wider use by the whole-of-Queensland community — government, businesses, community organisations and individuals to undertake gender analysis in the development of policy, programs and service delivery.

How can you be involved?

The Office for Women and Domestic Violence Reform is undertaking an online survey to seek feedback about areas for improvement.

We encourage you to complete the survey and tell us how the Toolkit can be improved. We also encourage you to let us know if you would like to be further involved in this project.

You can access the survey from March 2017 to April 2017 by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/r/RRJJ2TV .
