The results are in!

After a term of trainings, school visits, interviews, and data crunching, we have the results of our pilot. And they are really promising! Have a look at our impact report here.

Some headlines:

After our programme, we saw a…

  • 38% decrease in pupils who agreed that boys will grow up to have more important jobs than girls will;

  • 29% decrease in pupils who agreed that some jobs are only for men and some jobs are only for women;

  • 40% decrease in pupils who agreed that girls should like playing house and a 46% increase in pupils who agreed that it’s ok for boys to like playing house;

  • 52% increase in pupils who agreed that it's ok for girls to like playing with trucks;

  • 32% decrease in pupils who agreed that girls are kinder than boys are;

  • 30% decrease in pupils who agreed that boys are better at subjects like maths and science.

Equally as important, the teachers who delivered our pilot believed the lessons made a positive difference and would like to work with us again.

We couldn’t be more pleased, and while there is still A LOT of work for us to do, we’re really encouraged by these early results.

So what’s next?

This coming school year, we’re focused on integrating teacher feedback, maintaining the impact by involving parents and carers (more on that soon), growing across primary years, and expanding to additional schools. August is not a holiday month round here.

We’d love it if you read the report and came back with questions, comments, and conversations. Holla @ us!
