Nora Lamont

I am very proud of the work Council does to raise awareness of gender equity in our community.

There are many ways that we do this across the range of services, in particular with our young people and sporting organisations, by assisting with information and improved facilities to support both men and women.

Within Council we also support gender equity and I am proud to say that as a Council we have a good track record, with four of our nine Councillors being female.

Along with my fellow female Councillors, I am a Victorian Local Government Association Women’s Charter Champion. This role not only aims to increase women’s participation in local government, but is another mechanism by which we can continue to ensure gender equity across all levels within our community.
