National Women’s Alliances

Working for Women: A Strategy for Gender Equality (the Strategy) outlines how the Government will focus its efforts over the next decade to achieve gender equality.

The Government is providing up to $10.88 million from December 2024 to June 2029 to strengthen the National Women’s Alliances program to deliver expert and strategic advice on the solutions required to meet the Strategy’s vision.

Organisations and consortia are encouraged to apply to represent one or more of the following themes and/or diverse groups consistent with the priorities of the Strategy:

  • gender-based violence
  • women’s economic equality and leadership
  • migrant and refugee women
  • First Nations women
  • women living in rural, regional and remote areas
  • women with disability.

Up to 6 organisations may be selected through this open competitive process to provide collaborative, intersectional, evidence based gender expertise and strategic advice to Government to inform ongoing progress of the Strategy’s outcomes. Advice will focus on elevating the lived experiences of women in all their diversity and bringing together the expertise of the women’s sector and expert stakeholders. Cross alliance collaboration will be a central feature of the program, to ensure advice to Government is intersectional and prioritised.

The round is expected to open in May 2024. An information session will be advertised on GrantConnect.
