These resources have been selected because they are evidence based, accessible, practical and energising, and they are also free and online. They support the development of understandings about the way narrow gender identity constructions constrain us all, and should be implemented with a whole school community approach. It is also crucial that this work is undertaken within a broader well-being and social justice framework, employing critical, creative and transformative pedagogies. We hope you will browse and be inspired to seek professional development and support to implement these resources. Contact Maria Delaney at delaneymt@gmail.com
