The Grampians Community of Practice for the Prevention of Violence against Women (GCOP-PVAW) is an initiative by WHG to support the development and implementation of best-practice prevention projects in the Grampians region.
For this session, we will focus on strategies for engaging the community, particularly men and boys, in advocacy work to prevent gender-based violence. As an expert on the interplay between gender, violence and culture, Dr. Michael Salter from the University of Sydney will discuss, at length, the role men and boys have in shaping culture change and promoting gender equality.
Beyond improving our understanding of these topics, this session also seeks to:
- Provide the opportunity to hear local stories
- Promote sharing of useful resources, and
- Provide networking opportunities to meet others working in this area.
This is a forum for staff from organisations, or clubs, committees or networks in our region, who are interested in, or manage PVAW projects. If you have further enquiries regarding attendance, please contact WHG.
The Grampians Community of Practice for the Prevention of Violence Against Women (GCOP-PVAW) is led by WHG and supported by the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust.
