Hepburn Shire Council is proud of its diversity and believes that communities are enriched when all people, regardless of their background or identity, are embraced and supported to participate and contribute to community life. We are seeking additional members for our Gender Equity and Advisory Committee.

The purpose of the Gender Equity Advisory Committee is to advocate for gender equity within the Hepburn shire region through the provision of community-centric gender equity advice to Council on policies, plans, strategies, and programs that assist in the reduction of gender related imbalances.

The Hepburn Shire Council is seeking members who are knowledgeable and prepared to engage in exploring issues and opportunities to provide advice to Council and the broader community. It is preferable to have members who work or reside in a range of geographical areas across the Hepburn region and represent the diverse demographics, skills and expertise within the municipality.

Expressions of interest closed in April 2023. Thank you to everyone who applied. New committee members will be advised directly.
