Be ahead of the game – gender equality in sport
The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre invites you to our 2020 Forum, Be ahead of the game – Gender Equality in Sport. Be at the forefront of promoting gender equality and inclusion in your sporting club. We know that we need to achieve gender equality to prevent violence against women. Sport has a unique potential to create change and influence us all and we want your help to continue to build this momentum within our community.
Join us to hear from an outstanding line-up of sector leaders and content experts as they share strategies and practices that support gender equality in sport.
Following the latest advice from health authorities and the current situation, we have with heavy hearts and minds cancelled the Be ahead of the game-Gender Equality in Sport forum on Friday 27 March.
Our organisation has a public health approach to our primary prevention work, and the health and wellbeing of all communities is a high priority.
Who should attend the forum?
Key leaders of a diverse range of sports clubs/teams, community members, local government, and gender equity practitioners.
The morning will include key presentations from our guest speakers followed by a panel discussion and opportunities to engage with sector leaders and experts after the event.
Our guest speakers and panel members bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in sport and gender equality and inclusion.

About The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre
The Sexual Assault and Family Violence Centre is a community based, not-for-profit service, offering free, confidential trauma-informed sexual assault and family violence services across the Barwon, Wimmera and Western Melbourne areas of Victoria.
Our vision is for a community free from family violence and sexual assault, and a society underpinned by the principles of gender equality, social justice and human rights.
All participants are encouraged to view Our Watch’s Change the Story video. To end violence against women for good, we need to stop it from happening in the first place. This is called primary prevention. The best way to prevent violence against women is to promote gender equality.
Be ahead of the game – gender equality in sport is proudly supported by Pixeld, Leisure Networks, the Geelong Football Club and Christine Couzens MP.
