Contact your GippSport Program Coordinator or message GippSport to discuss ways your club can be more inclusive and reach greater goals by including all members fairly in your club.
GippSport is proud to partner with Gippsland Women’s Health to support local sporting clubs, throughout Gippsland, to better understand gender equity issues in Sport. Ongoing research and consultation across the industry have identified the barriers for women and girls to participate in all levels of sport. We would like to better understand what is happening locally, if progress is being made and how our staff can develop programs and resources to give direct assistance to local administrators and volunteers.
We have developed a short survey and we ask that club volunteers complete this survey by July 16 2018. Clubs can have more than one person complete the survey, so please distribute to your club contact list.
