Are you interested in becoming a GenWest LGBTIQA+ advocate?

GenWest is looking for women, non-binary and gender diverse people from the LGBTIQA+ community who would like to give feedback and advice to help make our service the best it can be. We are looking for LGBTIQA+ advocates who have a connection to Melbourne’s west.

We invite you to become a part of our LGBTIQA+ advisory group by meeting every three months and giving feedback on how GenWest can be a safer, more inclusive organisation for LGBTIQA+ people. Help us reach our vision to achieve gender equity across Melbourne’s west so that everyone can lead healthy, safe lives.

The benefits of being on the LGBTIQA+ advocate advisory group:

  • You will help GenWest be a better service for the LGBTIQA+ community
  • You will learn new skills and gain experience as an LGBTIQA+ advocate
  • You will be given opportunities for free training and professional development
  • You will meet other LGBTIQA+ advocates who want to make a difference
  • If you have any access or support requirements, we are more than happy to help!
  • You will be paid for every meeting you go to

If you are interested in being a part of this group:
