Gender + Place
XYX Lab is a team of experienced design researchers exploring gender-sensitive design practices and theory. Our work operates at the intersection of gender, identity, urban space and advocacy. Through our research, we bring together planners, policy makers, local government and stakeholders to make tangible the experiences of underrepresented communities in urban space and planning.
XYX Lab is grounded in feminist and queer theory and activated through real-world projects. Our approach is inclusive of all gender and sexual identities. Building equity into urban life requires long-term vision and a strategic - often radical - approach to the design process. We do not seek quick-fix design solutions, but rather seek to offer insights and create moments that contribute towards a larger movement for change.
Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre
The Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre is at the forefront of research and education aimed at preventing family violence. The centre is contributing to transformative social change aimed at ending family violence by providing an evidence base for policy change that better supports and protects those experiencing family violence and addresses the cultural and economic drivers that underpin it.
Monash Gender, Peace and Security Centre
Monash Gender, Peace & Security Centre is a research centre focused on issues of gender, peace and security. Our vision is to build globally-recognised, gender-inclusive research evidence to deliver peace and security globally. We seek to use our research to inform scholarly debate, policy development and implementation, and public understanding about the gendered nature of insecurity and the search for peace.
Global and Women's Health
Global and Women's Health seeks to promote health for all and to reduce health inequalities. In our Women’s Health research, we aim to understand the effects of gender on health and to reduce the health inequalities experienced by women and girls. We encourage and participate in research with other countries and with non-university groups and organisations. With our partners and collaborators we develop ways of using the results of research to inform policy and practice. Our research methods include those that encompass whole populations and those designed to understand the perspectives and experiences of individual people.
We collaborate with partners in universities, research institutes, government, the private sector, civil society, health services, and health professionals in Australia and globally. These partnerships enable our research to be informed by community perspectives, translated to inform policy and practice, and accessible to individuals, their families, and their healthcare providers.
