We all have a unique role to play…

Let’s get started

In EQUAL communities, equality and respect are at the heart of where people live, work, learn and play, which improves the wellbeing and prosperity of everyone.

Taking real action to create change takes commitment and dedication. We all have a unique role to play…

Let’s get started

Every single organisation, workplace, school, sporting club, media outlet, community group and education provider has the power to champion gender equality and respect through the way they conduct themselves – both in person and via they policies and procedures that shape their everyday operations.

This Respect 2040 website contains all of the resources, documents and contacts you will need to become a leader and advocate for gender equality.

We proudly acknowledge Aboriginal people as the first peoples, Traditional Owners and custodians of the lands and waters on which this work occurs. We acknowledge and respect the wisdom, living culture and unique role that Aboriginal people hold, and saw them thrive for thousands of years. We also acknowledge the ongoing leadership role of the Aboriginal community on gender equality and the prevention of violence against women. As First Peoples, our Aboriginal communities are best placed to determine their own culturally appropriate path to gender equality.

We acknowledge the support of the State Government of Victoria Office for Women - Free from Violence Women’s Health Service Capacity Building Fund.
