Experts By Experience

The Experts by Experience Working Group was established in 2018. Members of the group are women with disabilities who support the work of WDV and other organisations by sharing their lived experience of disability. Group members provide advice and feedback on WDV projects, resources and materials. Their advice is also sought by organisations wanting to provide services and resources that are accessible and welcoming for women with disabilities.

Group members have opportunities to share and gain skills from their peers and WDV staff through regular group meetings and periodic training sessions with a significant focus on gender equity and violence prevention and response. The group works together to enhance skills and capacities of the members in providing expert advice, advocacy and guest speaking.
