Greater Manchester has established a Women and Girls’ Equality Panel to accelerate gender equality, enabling women and girls to live their best life in Greater Manchester.
The panel was established in December 2020 and works to ensure that all women and girls, across the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester, have equality of opportunity to start well, live well and age well. It will establish a clear vision for women and girls in Greater Manchester to understand issues and inequalities impacting on their lives and recognising women and girls’ particular experience of the COVID-19 pandemic
The Panel meets four times a year, and aims to:
Advise the Mayor and GMCA on key issues and the inequalities facing women and girls, and provide solutions
Provide a critical voice and scrutinise the work of the Mayor and GMCA
Undertake specific pieces of work to reduce the inequalities experienced by women and girls in the city-region and across society
In addition, the Panel will ensure that gender equality is actively considered by GMCA, and the wider Greater Manchester system, in decisions made to help make the city-region a better place to live, work, study and do business, and that a differentiated approach is adopted where appropriate.
We particularly encourage women from diverse and minoritised backgrounds to apply as we look to strengthen the diversity of the panel.
