Our experienced staff are local leaders in the field of gender equity and shared learning. We make our expertise accessible to our communities through highly regarded research, resources and toolkits. We are alert to the political environment, and work to uphold and advance women’s rights by influencing policy and planning. We work alongside women to listen to and amplify experiences of health to raise awareness, change attitudes, and influence system response.
We also work with community groups, organisations and workplaces to develop and deliver information and practical tools, consultations, coaching, tailored training, workshops and facilitated conversations.
