Event description

Description

Family violence and violence against women are a scourge on our society. On average, in Australia, at least one woman a week is killed by a partner or former partner (OurWatch, 2017) and 1 in 3 women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15 (ANROWS, 2012). Expert speakers will discuss the underlying drivers of this violence, how they can be changed at the community level, and especially the role businesses can play in leading this change. Participants will leave inspired to lead change within their organisation, and within their sphere of influence as a business working with other businesses, and in their interface with the broader community. They will know where to access support via the Communities of Respect and Equality (CoRE) initiative: an Alliance of organisations in the Grampians region taking meaningful actions to eradicate violence against women and their children from our community, and also be aware of the benefits to their business that will become apparent when applying an equity and diversity lens.
