Gender Equality Network - Male champions of change update

16 Aug 2018


At this Gender Equality Network, we will hear from Male Champions of Change (MCC) representatives on its journey to date.

Since its start in 2010, MCC has been working with influential leaders to redefine men’s role in taking action on gender inequality. The MCC coalition now encompasses ten groups, amounting to around 170+ leaders across Australia.

Guest speakers will include:

  1. MCC’s CEO Annika Freyer and Troy Roderick, MCC’s Strategic Advisor who will discuss the MCC’s journey to date and future plans for continuing to effect change in support of gender equality, and
  2. Tim Reed, CEO MYOB and member of the MCC STEM group, who will discuss what his organisation has done to refine men’s role in taking action on gender inequality and the impact involvement in the MCC has had on them.

DCA’s CEO Lisa Annese, our event emcee, will also reflect on the findings of DCA’s Men Make a Difference: Engaging Men on Gender Equality report released last year, and will lead further discussion between audience members and our panel to explore the challenges and learnings from the MCC initiatives.
