Youth justice

  • For information, support or to get involved in Youth Justice initiatives that assist young people across the state, please contact YJFeedback@csyw.qld.gov.au.

Women

  • The Queensland Women's Strategy Community Implementation Plan includes a list of initiatives which outline how the government, business and community sectors are working together to achieve the collective vision for gender equality in Queensland. New initiatives and new actions will be added to the plan as work progresses, and as new ideas are generated and resources are identified. All Queenslanders are invited and encouraged to think about how they can help us to progress gender equality and to add to the plan. Achieving gender equality will require all Queenslanders to work together.
  • We are committed to increasing the number of women on boards in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Visit our Women on Boards website to find resources to assist in making a positive difference for gender parity in Queensland.
  • Queensland Women’s Week happens each year in March to recognise and celebrate the achievements of Queensland’s women and girls.
