50/50 by 2030 Foundation

Owning Institution

The 50/50 by 2030 Foundation is a bold new gender equality initiative established by the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis (IGPA), at the University of Canberra, Australia. The Foundation was officially launched by the Minister for Women, Senator Michaela Cash, and Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO, on 12 September 2017, at the Museum of Australian Democracy, Canberra.

Backed by world class research expertise, we aim to develop evidence based theory and leading practice on the role of women in strengthening public administration and improving governance and national well-being. We delight in partnership and collaboration. And we excel in innovative program design. Our bespoke training modules; seminars, and events aim to challenge the prevailing discourse around women, power and public leadership. As such, the 50/50 Foundation will be a rich resource for local, national and international governments; political parties; public sector and civil service administrations, in supporting their efforts to achieve gender parity in leadership by the year 2030.
