Cycling Australia is proud to be partnering with VicHealth to support more Victorian women and girls
to get active.

It’s fantastic that women’s sport is starting to get the recognition and respect it deserves but we still
have a long way to go to equal men’s sport in terms of participation, media coverage and profile,
and there are still not enough women in key decision making and leadership roles in sport.
With the support of VicHealth funding, Cycling Australia will promote gender equality and increase
the profile of women’s sport by promoting the This Girl Can – Victoria campaign to our members and

By taking the VicHealth Gender Equality in Sport Leadership Pledge, we are also committing to
achieving gender balance in all our public events and marketing, and prioritising access for women
and girls in all facilities we use.

We believe that increasing gender equality and female participation in sport benefits us all, from the
girls who get to continue playing sport all the way to elite levels just like their brothers; to the local
clubs whose community is enriched by having more women and girls involved; and the elite team
Boards that make better decisions with diverse views around the table.
