Fay Marles Equal Opportunity Sub Fund

The Fay Marles Equal Opportunity Sub-Fund was established in 2013 to honour the leadership and legacy of Victoria’s first Equal Opportunity Commissioner, Fay Marles AM.

The Victorian Equal Opportunity Act was passed in 1977 and Fay was appointed that same year. For the next decade she led the way in implementing reform on anti-discrimination, enabling women to take their place more equally in our workplaces and our community.

The Fay Marles Equal Opportunity Sub-Fund supports projects that provide:

  • Leadership training to increase young women’s working knowledge of equal opportunity legislation, structures and processes;
  • Research that strengthens knowledge of loopholes and gaps in equal opportunity legislation, with a view to system improvement and policy change;
  • Education and engagement on equal opportunity issues in workplaces, organisations and in the broader community.
