On Wednesday, March 29th 2023, 15 local young people graduated from GPAN's 10th consecutive year of training.
Over the six-week course, we explored the link between gender inequality and gender-based violence, intersectional feminism, respectful relationships, challenging gender stereotypes, bystander action and so much more!
We were joined by experts from Northern Community Legal Centre, Community Stars, The Man Cave and Women's Health in the North.
It was a joy to watch the new GPANers grow in their knowledge and confidence over the six weeks, culminating in a very special graduation night event, shared by family, friends and GPAN supporters.
Congratulations to Catherine, Annab, Aditya, Ayra, Sophie, Lulu, Aastha, Kate, Wania, Shanti, Emily, Siyoda, Jesse, Franklin and Rebecca.
Welcome to the GPAN family!

‘Every day that I’ve left these trainings for the last few weeks, I’ve left feeling really inspired, very emotional and I’m really grateful for the space we have to share, to cry, to laugh’
‘GPAN has changed my life in the most positive way and has changed the way I approach all my relationships, friends, strangers, family...'
‘Little did I know that all the people in that room were so beautiful inside and out. Everyone is so resilient, so headstrong and ready to smash the patriarchy in it’s face, I love that’
