For too long, gender equality progress has been stagnant.

Despite it being discussed more than ever before over recent years, Australia’s gender gap widened in 2021 by 0.08 percentage points, and the projected timeline to closing the gender gap globally has increased by a generation from 99.5 years to 135.6 years.

To truly move the needle on gender equality and inclusion, everyone, including men, needs to be not only involved but committed to action.

Our research revealed that 80% of men agree that gender equality affects us all and that something needs to be done. What’s more, we know that when men are deliberately engaged in gender inclusion programs, 96% of organisations see progress, compared to only 30% of organisations where men are not engaged.

Armed with insights from our research, we have developed Better TogetHER, a free, online program created to educate, support and empower individuals in their allyship practices. By increasing awareness and providing actionable steps, Better TogetHER aims to bring everyone along on this journey.

Enrol to begin bridging the gap between intention and action to create impact and drive progress in the gender equality movement.

5-part digital program

Program Overview & Learning Outcomes

A five-part, online program that guides participants from awareness through to action, providing tangible ways in which they can become allies within their organisation. As part of the program, you will hear stories of allyship to see what active allyship looks like in every day life


  • Module 1:
    • Let’s Get Honest!
    • Participants debunk common gender equality myths, expand their knowledge of what an ‘ally’ is (passive vs active) & why women need allies in the workplace.

  • Module 2:
    • Active-Allyship Action 1: Speaking Up
    • Participants develop an understanding of the first category of allyship: speaking up. Allies can speak up for someone who’s being treated unfairly or dismissively by advocating for them or by amplifying under appreciated perspectives and contributions.

  • Module 3:
    • Active-Allyship Action 2: Extending Opportunities
    • Participants develop an understanding of the second category of allyship: extending opportunities. Allies also can give people opportunities by helping them access learning, leadership roles, or professional or social networks.

  • Module 4:
    • Active-Allyship Action 3: Change Systems
    • Participants develop an understanding of the third category of allyship: change/challenge systems. Allyship can mean working to make your team’s everyday systems and processes—its decisions, meetings, and communications—fairer and more equitable.

  • Module 5:
    • Make It Happen
    • Participants are equipped with a roadmap/personal action plan to implement the three acts of allyship in their workplaces.
