Checklist for Gender Equality

How does your club fare?

Sport North East is seeking out clubs interested in increasing awareness of gender equality within their community.

VicHealth has developed a Checklist for Gender Equality as an opt-in project for all sporting organisations within the Alpine, Indigo, Towong, Wangaratta & Wodonga shires.

By completing this short questionnaire, clubs will have tailored guidance to create small positives towards gender equality through low to no-cost and simple to implement changes.

This Girl Can – Victoria

We’re celebrating everyday women being active, regardless of background, ability, age or body shape. So many of us worry about being judged for our appearance or ability when we work out. Why should we let it stop us from getting involved and staying healthy?

We’re banding together to say ‘this girl can’ take her health and happiness back into her own hands. It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie or a regular, how red and sweaty your face gets, or even if you don’t know all the rules; all that matters is you’re giving it a go.

One way we are doing this in north east Victoria is by supporting the Rutherglen Bowling Club deliver the Bowling with Babies initiative from Bowls Victoria. It’s a great way to make friends while getting active in a comfortable and encouraging environment.

Over the summer we are teaming up with Rural City of Wangaratta, Wangaratta Croquet Club, Wangaratta Traditional Karate Do Goju-Kai and Wangaratta Ultimate to deliver fun and flexible physical activity offerings to local women of all ages and abilities. Stay tuned for more details about how you can be involved.
