Our Codes Our Clubs

Knox City Council, together with Maroondah City Council and Yarra Ranges Shire Council recently undertook a research project in partnership with nine local sporting clubs across the three municipalities. The project, funded by the Municipal Association of Victoria, sought to identify the practical actions sporting clubs can undertake to promote and normalise gender equality within their clubs, and help change the story of violence against women.

The project featured three outcomes:

  • A Gender Equity Audit;
  • Short Film: Equality is the Game; and
  • Equality is the Game Committee Resource.

Gender Equity Audit

The Gender Audit Tool (PDF) is a practical tool to assist clubs identify strengths and opportunities for improvement to promote equality. This tool aims to assist clubs to look at different areas in a club environment, and recognise how clubs are travelling in relation to gender equality.

The tool should be used as a ‘temperature check’ at a moment in time, and provide an opportunity for your club to learn and discuss ways it can continue to create healthy environments for women and men.

Short Film: Equality is the Game

The short film Equality is the Game! highlights the stories of local clubs across a range of codes who have implemented changes to promote gender equality and the benefits they have experienced.

Equality is the Game - Sporting Club Committee Resource

The Sporting Club Committee Resource (PDF) highlights the practical actions clubs can undertake to contribute to the prevention of violence against women by creating safe, equal and respectful environments for all members, particularly women and girls.
