About the Office of Gender Equity and Diversity

Within Territory Families the Office of Gender Equity and Diversity provides policy advice across government and directly to the Minister for Territory Families in relation to gender equality, gender diversity and inclusion in the Northern Territory.

The Office undertakes project work to progress key reforms and administers grants and scholarships to provide equal opportunities for all Territorians to reach their full potential through gendered approaches.

The Office of Gender Equity and Diversity incorporates the former Office of Women’s Policy and the Office of Men’s Policy and now includes gender diversity.

The Office of Gender Equity and Diversity will be developing the Northern Territory’s first Gender Equality Framework in 2018.

Community consultations to inform the framework will be commencing soon.  You will also be able to provide input via the ‘Have your Say’ website.

Register your interest – Northern Territory Government board member

The Northern Territory Government (NTG) boards and committees play an important role in good governance by providing independent and expert governance or advice. They provide an effective link between government and the community.

To register your interest in serving on an NTG board, visit NTG Careers in Government. Using the search parameters, search the keyword ‘board’, complete the registration form and upload your CV and other required documents, including visa documents. Registrations are uploaded onto an EOI Boards Register which is accessible by all NTG agencies. As vacancies arise, NTG officers can search for potential nominees on the EOI Board Register. Submitting your EOI registration form does not guarantee appointment to a board, but it does indicate your agreement for your CV to be accessible by NTG agencies.
