  • Auditing workplace human resource policies and practice for engaging men and boys towards gender equality
  • Initiating human resource policies to counteract gender-inequitable masculinity and its impacts
  • Auditing the business of the organisation
  • Developing non-stereotypical portrayals of women and men
  • Getting involved with and signing up to government, school and civil society initiatives
  • Developing a community of practice
