Government grants Program evaluation Gender identity Gender stereotypes Masculinity Victoria

This report presents the evaluation findings from the Human Code project, an initiative run in Macedon Ranges by Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health (SCCH), and funded by VicHealth’s Healthier Masculinities Partnership Grants. The authors offer recommendations for future community partnerships seeking to promote gender transformative, healthier masculinities work.

This evaluation focused on:

  1. Documenting the challenges and enablers of developing place-based, gender-transformative community initiatives aimed at men
  2. Assessing the project team’s success in raising community awareness of the impacts of pressure to conform to outdated masculine stereotypes, and;
  3. Measuring short-term increases in knowledge about and confidence to challenge outdated masculine stereotypes brought about by the pilot programs.
