Established in April 2015, Male Champions of Change Victoria is focused on a strategy of engaging influential men to step up beside women to take action to advance gender equality. In 2015/16 the group led conversations with both male and female employees in their organisations to identify the barriers that need to be tackled to advance women into positions of leadership.
The members are drawn from a wide range of fields including business, government, industry, the media, law enforcement, health and education. Together, they head organisations that make major economic, social and cultural contributions to our state, across Australia and internationally.
The Commission is proud to have been involved in the establishment of Male Champions of Change Victoria. Convened by Federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins, the group joined the newly incorporated national Male Champions of Change Institute in July 2016.
