Introducing our new Gender Impact Assessment Training of Trainers Package / 26.08.2022

A flat-lay of eight pages from the Training of Trainers guidebook, including the cover, a section on lesson plans, some case studies and more.

We get it. Whilst it’s exciting to create real change to advance gender equality in your organisation, it can be hard to know where to start.

We’re here to help.

For over a year, we’ve been providing bespoke training and support to the Victorian Public Sector, including universities and local councils, on these new requirements.

Now, we’re thrilled to be expanding our offerings to make it easier for Victorian public entities, or any workplace, to access our expertise.
