  2. Key concepts, case studies and readings - gender-competent-leadership/genovate4.html
  3. Some thoughts from Avril Henry - what-feminism-&-equality-really-mean
  4. The effects of unconscious bias in the workplace - unc-white-paper-the-real-effects-of-unconscious-bias-in-the-workplace-Final
  5. The Victorian Governments recently released Gender Equality Strategy – an outcome of the Royal Commission into Family Violence and a good framework to have in mind - http://www.vic.gov.au/women/gender-equality/a-victorian-gender-equality-strategy.html.  This is high level and focuses on system change.  It does make reference to shifting embedded and harmful attitudes but doesn’t address unconscious bias directly.  The action plans and the Prevention Strategy currently being developed should do that.
