Join the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) and ICN Victoria for the upcoming webinar Building Equality Policy Activation Session where you will gain confidence in and understanding of the new Building Equality Policy.
The Building Equality Policy (BEP) aims to increase the number of women working in construction, to address the gender imbalance by introducing targets and requirements for women on government funded projects. The BEP also provides the tools to promote construction as an attractive career option for women and to improve workplace culture to be more inclusive, diverse and respectful to retain women in the industry.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

• what the policy is and how it relates to your business
• how to implement the policy and respond to its requirements in your tenders
• what is involved in a Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP) and implementation guidance
• how to access the support available to you to implement the policy

This webinar will run for 60 minutes and includes a Q&A session. You are encouraged to pre-ask questions for this session when you register.
