Community Leaders United By Sport (CLUBS)

Monash Council is currently implementing a gender equity in sports initiative called Community Leaders United by Sport (CLUBS) in partnership with Link Health & Community and Monash University. It has been funded through Sport and Recreation Victoria.

We are working closely with 10 sports clubs who successfully applied to be part of the program. These clubs have nominated culture change ‘champions’ who participated in focus groups and leadership training to:

  1. Challenge gender stereotypes and roles to create environments where everyone feels equal and respected; and
  2. Increase women’s participation in all aspects of sport and recreation including decision-making.

The champions have had an opportunity to share their thoughts with Council around their priorities for improving gender equity at their club, and have been provided with capacity building, tools and resources to make positive changes such as leadership training.

The 10 successful clubs are:

  • Ashwood Netball Club
  • Essex Heights Tennis Club
  • Glen Waverley Junior Cricket League
  • Harlequin Rugby Club
  • Mazenod Old Collegians Football Club
  • Monash Warriors Gridiron
  • Mount Waverley Bowling Club
  • Oakleigh District Football Netball Club
  • Oakleigh Tennis Club
  • Waverley Hockey Club

While the pilot program has focused on these 10 clubs, Monash Council is keen to share the learnings and insights more broadly with other clubs in the municipality.

Liz Fitzgerald, CLUBS Project Officer, is available if you have questions around promoting gender equity at your club or would like to receive resources or tools to assist you with promoting your club to women and girls. Call Liz on 9518 3425 or email Liz.Fitzgerald@monash.vic.gov.au for more information.
