The Ministry of Transport is committed to removing inequality in our workplace.

Our overarching vision is to create a working environment that is free from gender based inequalities and enables employees to achieve their careers aspirations free from gender bias.

Together, with a working group including human resources, the Public Service Association, employees and managers, we’ve created a Gender Pay Analysis and Action Plan for 2020.

The Plan reviews the progress made in 2019 and sets out the actions we will take in 2020 to help achieve our key objective ‘To remove all unjustified gender-based pay gaps and gender-based inequalities’.

We’ve structured our Action Plan around four outcomes:

  • We will have balanced gender representation in our leaders.
  • We will ensure flexible working arrangements are our default.
  • We will eliminate unconscious bias.
  • We will eliminate bias and discrimination in recruitment systems of HR practices.

These outcomes align with the Government’s Eliminating the Public Service Gender Pay Gap 2018-2020 Action Plan on the State Services Commission website.
