Victorian Gender Equality Citizens' Jury
We recently partnered with the Department of Health and Human Services and Mosaic Lab to film the Victorian Gender Equality Citizens’ Jury. The jury was composed of a representative selection of Victorians who came together in Melbourne across two days. They deliberated on how to best meet the goals of the recent Victorian Government’s Gender Equality Bill.
The aim of the Act is to enshrine gender equality in law and it proposes that the public sector and all local governments in Victoria work to achieve this through quotas, action plans and reporting. The Citizen’s Jury was a critical event in allowing all Victorians to have their say. We were proud to capture the constructive debate, positive energy and success of the event.
“The equality between women and men needs to be law. Good intentions aren’t cutting it” - Minister for Women, Natalie Hutchins
As a company founded by two women we are thrilled that this positive step has been taken towards gender equality. We’re excited to finalise this project in post production and share the finished product before the Bill is introduced in parliament in March next year.
