Generating equality and respect: Tools and resources
This set of resources were produced by Generating Equality And Respect (GEAR) which was a three-and-a-half-year primary prevention of violence against women program carried out in Melbourne’s south-east. The goal of the program was to build communities and cultures that are gender equitable, and value and support non-violent norms. GEAR brought together a range of tried and tested primary prevention programs to a single location. The project developed written resources, a short video and an evaluation report. The short video shows local participants expressing why and how the project was successful. The evaluation report for the project is available on the webpage. The written resources detail key principles for conducting similar projects and initiatives, each focusing on a particular aspect of the project: Applying a gender lens in the workplace; Establishing a youth-focused network (step-by-step guide to establishing a local ‘Partners in Prevention’ network, a network of professionals who work with young people to build respectful relationships and prevent violence against women); Guide to site selection (guidance on selecting a geographically defined area for a site-based primary prevention of violence against women program); Staff training (planning, delivering and evaluating training on gender equity and the prevention of violence against women); Supporting gender equity in the workplace (shares insights on supporting gender equity in the workplace); and Taking a local lead (delivering a site-based model of primary prevention)
