Gender Equity Community of Practice –

Women’s Health Goulburn North East hosts the Gender Equity Community of Practice (CoP). In 2024, new and returning participants will continue to have the opportunity to connect, reflect and collaborate on gender equity work across the region 

What does the Community of Practice do?

The COP aims to build our regional capacity as a collective to approach the complex problems of gender inequality and violence against women. 

Gender inequality and violence against women are complex problems that require complex, multi-faceted strategies. The diverse attendees of the CoP are well positioned to bring different perspectives and understandings to the space to affect change. 

Our community of practice acknowledges that our prevention work is connected and interrelated, and that common touchpoints exist across the systems we work within. The contributions of the community, our guests and the diversity of perspectives of the participants ensure that the work is relevant across a broad range of settings. 

What’s happening in 2024? 

Looking ahead to 2024.  

In 2024, WHGNE will continue to offer space for you to strengthen connections within our wider regional network, build relationships, hear diverse perspectives, and engage in shared learning as we build more equitable practices together. 

As an organisation, we are approaching our work using a system’s thinking approach. By thinking about change in this way, we understand that every actor in our “system” has a role to play. There is no one person, or organisation who is in a position of power or influence to affect that change on their own.  

Thinking about our region as a “system”, our Community of Practice offers a space where we can come together, to pull our levers of influence, and share our creative approaches to working towards a more gender equitable world.
