Women’s Health Goulburn North East is the local leader in the field of
gender equity and shared learning.

Victoria’s Gender Equality Act is here!

Learn about how to implement it and embed gender equity in your organisation or workplace here.

The Gender Equity Community of Practice (formerly known as the Prevention of Violence Community of Practice), brings together key stakeholders to collaboratively address one of the key drivers of violence against women – gender inequality.

The community of practice is integral to ensuring the voices and needs of the north-east Victorian and Goulburn Valley communities are captured in this vital transformational work.

Join us to explore our new ways of conceiving of, and collaborating on, our work toward gender equality as part of our Gender Equity Community of Practice.

The Gender Equity Pathway is a whole-of-organisation approach to regional systemic change.

While individuals have power to change, it’s when we work together in a coordinated way that we can make the systemic change we need towards our goal of gender equality.

The Pathway is a co-designed process where we work with organisations to understand where they are now, where they want to be and importantly, where they can aspire to be in relation to gender equality.

Read more about the Gender Equity Pathway on our blog.

We have developed a suite of practical tools that you can use to start, build on and further develop gender equity practice in your organisation.

Head to our Resources page and select the “Toolkit” category – this will get you started.

We can work with you to develop practices that apply a gendered lens to your organisation.

For example we can: 

  • Review and advise on your health and wellbeing plans;
  • Help you to review your workplace culture to further embed gender equity principles;
  • Review and advise on your policies and procedures;
  • Review and advise on your organisation’s emergency management protocols;
  • Discuss, review and advise on your recruitment and retention practices;
  • Assist in developing internal and external communications strategies;
  • Attend, observe and evaluate training; and
  • Support you to implement requirements under the upcoming Gender Equality Act.

We work in a creative and safe environment that allows for learning and reflection.

We can talk at forums, meetings and events on topics around gender equity, as well as current issues affecting rural, regional and remote women.

We can also facilitate conversation that are designed specifically for your organisation’s needs.

WHGNE has a long history of working in partnership with organisations for community benefit. Formal and informal partnerships ensure that WHGNE understands the needs of the community and that workplaces, organisations and communities are supported to drive change towards gender equity.

Examples of partnerships with workplaces, organisations and communities include:

We have three approaches to learning at WHGNE:

  • Self-directed online learning via our WHGNE eLearning
  • Blended learning using a combination of self-directed learning (WHGNE eLearning) and facilitated conversations (in-person, online or in the physical room)
  • Tailored, in-person training

We can deliver training via these three approaches across a wide range of topics that relate to Gender Equality and the Prevention of Gender-based Violence.
