Prevention of Violence Against Women with Disabilities Micro-webinar Series and Understanding Disability animated video
Women with disabilities experience considerable discrimination and violence based on gender inequality and disability inequality.
To combat this, Women with Disabilities Victoria have developed new resources to increase awareness and build the capacity of disability, health service, social service and prevention workforces to deliver gender and disability equitable, responsive and inclusive services.
Resources to be launched are:
• 1 animated video on Understanding Disability – introducing viewers to 6 keystones for how we understand disability and how we want others to understand disability- to build an equitable and safe future.
• Micro-webinar series
WDV would like to introduce our new pilot online awareness raising micro courses. These courses explore violence against women with disabilities. The first course increases awareness of the impact of violence against women with disabilities and the second course introduces prevention of violence against women with disabilities. Both courses have a short online assessment and feedback form – once complete participants will receive a certificate of completion.
These resources are part of a larger resource suite designed to promote prevention of violence against women with disabilities.
The Gender and Disability Workforce Development Program is supported by the Victorian Government.
