Gender Equity Checklist

The growth of sporting opportunities for women is undeniable.  With sports such as AFL and cricket now having their women competitions broadcast on free-to-air, it is opportune for clubs to try and capitalise by growing their club.  There are plenty of funding opportunities available to help with this (see VicHealth’s Active Club Grant as an example), but clubs also should be aware of the current state of play at their own club.  To help ensure your club is ready to welcome more women and girls, we are encouraging clubs to undertake a Gender Equity Checklist which will help identify areas the club can improve.  South West Sport will discuss your responses with you and will help explore a range of quick actions for you to consider that can have a lasting impact.
