CHIA Vic is pleased to have teamed up with Gender Equity Victoria to deliver this members’ only information session to support members in achieving the gender equality objectives of the Big Housing Build.

CHIA Vic members are in the process of preparing their proposals for the Regional Round of the Big Housing Build. Amongst the many requirements of these proposals, they need to outline how they will meet the social procurement requirements, which have been ramped up compared to the rapid round.

This members’ only information session will support CHIA Vic Members who are preparing proposals for the Regional Round. Members will be briefed on the gender equality requirements of the round, with concrete proposals on how to meet the requirements, both for the purpose of submitting the proposal and then achieving the gender equality outcomes in your operations.

This session is also useful for members who aren’t necessarily preparing proposals for the Regional Round, but more broadly, are looking to improve gender equality within their organisation.

Following the session, members will receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation, which is being developed as a ‘how to guide’ for meeting the gender requirements of the Regional Round.

NB A follow-up information session will be held in early 2022 to provide members with ongoing support to strengthen their gender equality architecture over time, including planning to enable CHIA VIC members to meet the ongoing requirements of the Big Housing Build.


Date: Wednesday 8 December

Time: 9:30 am – 11:30 am

Presenter: Dr. Caroline Lambert

Venue: Zoom invite will be emailed to registered participants the day before the event

Cost: FREE for CHIA Vic members
