Where we work

The Partnership is state-wide and the only provider of gender equity change that is place-based and regionalised.

Members of the Partnership deliver local and state-wide action for gender equality tailored to all metropolitan and regional settings.

We reach all private, public and community sector entities wherever they are placed. An office in Geelong receives the same training, communication and change as an office in North Melbourne or an office in East Gippsland.
