Football Victoria (FV) is proud to be part of The Change Makers Project, an innovative collaboration between FV, Victoria University and Clubs. The project will assist Clubs to make tangible improvements and opportunities for women & girls, with the aim of achieving 50/50 representation.
The Sport and Social Change Lab at Victoria University have designed a football-specific inclusion and diversity program. Clubs can nominate one Change Maker to participate in the project, who will be guided to create tailored, practical and sustainable solutions to drive participation and improve experiences for women and girls.
‘Change Makers’ will develop knowledge and skills through four guided workshops, led by highly experienced educators in gender and diversity in sport.
Participants will be guided to design a project that seeks to make a change toward 50/50 at their Club, working one-on-one with one of the project mentors, who will assist with implementation and evaluation.
Registration into the program is FREE for first 50 Change Makers (limit of one per club).
Cohort 1 is underway now, with registrations open for Cohort 2 (15-20 people - w/c October 19, 2020); and Cohort 3: (20 people - w/c February 7, 2021).
This is a fantastic opportunity to access expert advice for free, to drive women & girls participation and improvements at your Club. To learn more and register an expression of interest, click here.
The project is supported by Victoria State Government: Office for Women in Sport and Recreation, Change our Game Research Grant until May 2021.
