Gendered Data and Planning: A Resource for Local Government launch

Join Women’s Health Goulburn North East for the launch of Gendered Data and Planning: a resource for local government.


This resource has been designed to support local government in Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing planning by demonstrating the value of gender-disaggregated data and highlighting priority areas for men, women and gender-diverse people across the region. It may also be of use to those working in the health and community sector who are interested in gendered planning for social health outcomes.


Included in the resources are suggestions for areas of partnerships between local government and key stakeholders in the community, so attendance at the launch may be relevant for those working directly in local government and those with an interest in community health and wellbeing.


The short session will cover a brief history of the resource, updates to the 2020 edition and an overview of how the resource may be used by those involved in Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing planning.

What is this resource?


The WHGNE Gendered Data and Planning resource demonstrates the value of gender-disaggregated data, and highlights some of the most pressing needs for women in each municipality, across the region and the state, as defined by the Victorian State Government.


This resource is to be used alongside the Gender Equity Snapshot, which highlights gender inequities in each municipality relevant to women’s education, representation in leadership, workforce participation and safety. Together, these tools will assist local government in the planning, development, implementation and evaluation of the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plans (MPHWP) 2021 –2025.
