Yarra Ranges Council and Inspiro are pleased to launch 'Creating a Place for Women in Sport', a practical, gender equity self-assessment tool for sports and recreation clubs to create equal opportunities for women in sport. The tool aims to assist clubs to assess their environment, identify strengths and opportunities to create positive actions for gender equality. The tool also supports clubs to plan for action as they go, and develop ideas for change. To access the self-assessment tool and resources, click here.
Creating a Place for Women in Sport is part of the Council’s Gender Equity Action Plan in helping to prevent violence against women and children in our community by:
- Making sporting facilities more accessible to women and girls
- Supporting participation of girls and women in sport through Council’s Community Grants criteria, and
- Employing a Recreation Inclusion Officer who supports sporting clubs and communities to increase inclusion and gender equity participation across all sports and clubs.
