These high-quality gender equity education programs and evidence based teaching and learning resources have been developed in consultation with the VET sector, industry and gender equity specialists and will provide individuals and organisations with the knowledge and skills they need to build the structures, systems and cultures that will embed gender equality across all domains of society; in workplaces, at home, in education and the community, building a more gender equitable Victoria”.
