Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities: Workforce Resources for Action
As part of the 2021 International Women’s Day Celebrations, Women with Disabilities Victoria are holding a FREE webinar and launch of our newest resource Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities: Workforce Resources for Action.
Women with disabilities experience high rates of gender and disability-based violence.
It is essential that we highlight the specific drivers of violence against women with disabilities and the specific actions that we can take as a society to prevent this targeted violence.
Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities: Workforce Resources for Action have been developed to expand upon the important work we have been doing at WDV and Our Watch’s Change the Story national framework by placing a disability lens over the evidence of what works to prevent violence.
This important event is open to those who work in the disability, social services and the Prevention of Violence Against Women sectors.
The event will be held on Wednesday 10th March 2021, from 11:00am to 12:30pm.
