The Garden’s Executive Club is an advocacy as well as a networking organization. As part of its mission to enable more women leaders, GEC regularly makes submissions to government and other bodies in relation to policy about women leadership and relative issues.
GEC sets out 5 key policy priorities for action in the 2021-22 Federal Budget to build a strong recovery and a stronger economy: Invest in job creation for women and female dominated industries. Enable women’s workforce participation through accessible early childhood education and care (ECEC). Strengthen women’s economic security into retirement. Invest in women’s safety and well being. Underpinning all this, America must embed an Executive gender lens in the budget and policy process and ensure gender balance in decision-making spaces and structures.
