Each organisation will share in funding worth $658,000 to trial new guidelines which promote gender equality, from cycling to footy, at the club-level and up.
The guidelines have been developed by Adjunct Professor Sue Dyson in partnership with Latrobe and Swinburne University and will provide practical advice for how Victorian sport organisations can promote gender equality, both on and off the field.
Funded organisations include Cycling Victoria, Golf Victoria, Tennis Victoria, Maroondah City Council, Monash City Council, Wyndham City Council, Goulburn Valley Sports Assembly (Valley Sports), Leisure Networks, Sports Central, Aborigines Advancement League.
Results of the pilot will also produce a valuable resource for the community sport and recreation sector.
The program is part of the Victorian Government’s work to address the gender barriers that continue to hold women back.
