The Women and Work Parliamentary Friendship Group has been established to inform Members and Senators of the Commonwealth Parliament on the issues surrounding women’s workforce participation and their long-term economic security. It will:
- Draw on the experience and opinions of women, and other stakeholders and Parliamentarians to reduce any barriers to women’s long term economic wellbeing
- Identify the barriers to women’s full participation in the workforce
- Outline strategies to overcome those barriers, and
- Connect member organisations of economic Security4Women (eS4W) with parliamentarians in order for them to better understand their respective roles.
