Better men for a better world

Statement of Inclusion

Menergy, Island Of Men, Common Ground and Victorian Men’s Wellbeing welcome all men. Our principles and code of conduct require all participants to act with respect for age, cultural diversity, religious, spiritual and ideological beliefs, disability, physical and mental health, gender, identity, sexual orientation and relationship status.

All people identifying as males should feel that Victorian Men’s Wellbeing events are SAFE, WELCOMING and INCLUSIVE, where everyone has the opportunity to feel comfortable to be themselves.

For our LGBTIA+ people, that means a respectful environment where everyone is treated equally, feels included and valued.

We expect all participants to automatically include LGBTIA+ diversity in their language in public space to account for those identifying as male. We also ask that participants avoid assumptions regarding a person’s anatomy, gender or sexual preferences.

We see these events as a time to share heartfelt connections with a diverse range of males and to gain insight and understanding into all realms of masculinity.

We believe all males have something to offer and we’d like to feel that we are creating a space for all to express and share freely.

We create a celebration of masculinity that is inclusive for all men.
