About the workshop:

This full-day workshop provides an introductory guide to understanding gender within our society. The workshop unpacks the impact of gender inequality on our health and wellbeing in Australia and best practice approaches to building gender equity into your work. The workshop focuses on building the practical skills needed to apply a gender lens to the design, delivery and evaluation of gender sensitive programs, policies, and initiatives.
This workshop has been delivered by Women’s Health Victoria since 2009 under the title “Applied Gender Analysis”.

What is a gender lens?

A gender lens is the careful and deliberate examination of the implications of our work on women, men and gender diverse people. This is done through analysis, planning, evaluation and decisions-making that takes account of differing circumstances, needs and impacts.
