Join our team –

Women’s Health Goulburn North East (WHGNE) is a proudly feminist organisation, supporting the creation of equal, just and resilient communities that lead change towards women’s empowerment, women’s health, the prevention of violence against women and ultimately, gender equality, in rural and regional Victoria. 


Our work addresses the harms of binary gender norms and practices to achieve long-term gender equality. We apply a gendered lens to the factors and environments that shape women’s health and wellbeing in rural and regional Victoria. Our expertise is in women’s economic empowerment, gender justice and climate change, gender equity, the prevention of violence against women and sexual and reproductive health. 


Our experienced staff are local leaders in the field of gender equity and shared learning. We make our expertise accessible to our communities through highly regarded research, resources and toolkits. We are alert to the political environment, and work to uphold and advance women’s rights by influencing policy and planning. We work alongside women to listen to and amplify experiences of health to raise awareness, change attitudes, and influence system response. 


We also work with community groups, organisations and workplaces to develop and deliver information and practical tools, consultations, coaching, tailored training, workshops and facilitated conversations.
