Our Federal funding contract terminates on the 25th of December 2016, and the Federal government has made no commitment to ongoing funding. WE ARE FACING CLOSURE. We have been providing our service to the Queensland community for 20 years.
We have had many people ask us how they can help us stay open. All we are asking is for you to send us $1. Anything above $1 is incredibly generous.
Otherwise sign our petition:
Working Women Queensland provides direct services to vulnerable women in Queensland about their rights at work. We are primarily a telephone advisory service that is operated and maintained by 7 part-time staff members. $50,000 will keep a staff member employed past December 2016.
Additional to the responsive phone service we represent women in various complaints on average 2 times a week. We represent in the Anti-Discrimination Commission of Queensland, the Australian Human Rights Commission, the Fair Work Commission, the Fair Work Ombudsman and the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission.
Our vision is for equitable and fair outcomes for Queensland women in their employment. We strive to be a leading source of expertise in improving the status of women in the workplace.
We promote justice and equality in the workplace through:
– challenging gender-based inequality;
– challenging the exploitation of young people in the workplace;
– advocating for and assisting women with workplace issues, such as domestic violence, discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying and enforcing workplace rights.
Our work is characterised by:
– Working with each other and those outside our organisation in ways that are inclusive, collaborative, consultative, respectful and consistent with a feminist approach.
Please help keep our vital service open! Thank you for everyone’s generous support.
