Navigating gender equality at work


At work, men can be the forgotten half of the gender equality equation. 

Many men want to be involved in the conversation – but they might not know where to start. Change Makers gives men the skills they need to be partners in the business of gender equality.


Who's it for?

The course is designed for men who want to become better managers and leaders. Change Makers will assist in their understanding of how a gender-equal workplace can benefit them, the organisation in which they work and the teams they work in.

Unpacking the detail

  • Participants in Change Makers will hear from leaders in diverse fields of work – of all genders – and learn from their successes, failures, and what they wish they'd known earlier about championing gender equality at work. 
  • Through a mixture of small group workshops, video content and practical presentations the course will cover formal training on workplace laws around sexual harassment, practical topics like performance review bias, and tips for mentoring and advocating for women in the workforce.
  • Change Makers will also provide an inclusive and comfortable environment for participants to discuss real-life examples of common workplace challenges, and provide employees a confidential environment to seek advice and explore difficult issues. 


  • The Change Makers program will be run online over two days on Thursday 9 December and Friday 10 December.
  • The cost is $3,000 per participant, excluding GST, and places are limited.
