About this Event

About the training

Intersectional Economics provides an understanding of Intersectional, feminist approaches to financial capability and economic security, while identifying the systemic barriers that impact a diverse range of women, and effect their financial wellbeing.

Intersectional Economics includes:

  • An introduction to why gender and Intersectionality matters when it comes to economic security
  • What intersectional barriers to economic security affect women, with a focus on First Nations women, migrant and refugee women and women with a disability
  • What are trauma-informed and strengths based practices
  • What works and what people working in financial capability roles can do to increase positive economic outcomes for all women

This training is aimed at community services, family violence professionals, women’s health workers and financial capability/services workers.

All sessions of Intersectional Economics will be delivered online.
