NSW Local Government Change the Story Preventing Violence Against Women
Thu. 23 March 2017, 9:30 am – 3:30 pm AEDT
This workshop, networking and connecting event is for NSW Local Government officers.
It will build our understanding of the national approach to preventing violence against women and their children: Our Watch's Change the Story. This is a great opportunity for NSW local government officers who are working in their communities to prevent violence against women and their children:
How do we know that our work to prevent violence against women is effective? Why do we implement the programs that we do? What do we do after we've raised awareness, distributed service referral information and taken action to challenge the condoning of violence against women? What's next?
This workshop will:
Build our understanding of why we need a sound framework to inform our work to prevent violence against women and their children
Build our understanding of the Change the Story framework including how we can implement it in our work- with examples and case studies
Be a great networking and connecting opportunity with others working in local government to prevent violence.
