Providing gender sensitive, strength based service to women before, in, and following Disasters

About this event

Gender, Disaster and Financial Wellbeing builds on and shares learnings from professionals working across Black Summer Bushfire response, and focuses on providing services to improve economic security for women before, in and following disasters in gender sensitive, strengths-based and trauma-informed ways. This training is designed for financial counsellors and financial capability workers.

Gender, Disaster and Financial Wellbeing includes:

• Gender and Disaster – understanding how gender roles impact and affect women’s economic safety in before, during and after Disaster

• Components of preparation for both service provider and service user

• Components of response for both service provider and service user

• Integrating Intersectionality into your work

• Worker resources to assist women understand their financial and insurance situation in preparation, and practical checklist to assist organisation in response

This training is aimed at financial counsellors and financial capability workers.

The free training has been developed by the Gender, Disaster and Financial Wellbeing project. The training is one of two sessions focussing on providing an increased awareness of barriers to economic security for women before, in and following disasters such as bushfire, and what workers can do to address these barriers in gender sensitive, strengths-based and trauma-informed ways.

The development of the training has been done in consultation with both impacted women and financial counsellors and capability workers in areas recovering from the Black Summer Bushfires, 2019-20.
