Your opportunity to make real change

The Workforce Development Program on Gender and Disability is a primary prevention strategy which aims to prevent violence against women with disabilities, improve gender and disability responsive service practice and ultimately improve the status and opportunities of women with disabilities.

Who should attend? This training will benefit people who work in the disability sector, local council, education, specialist organisations and other social service roles.

What you will learn:

  • Impacts of violence against WWD
  • Why gender inequity is a key driver of violence against WWD
  • How gender and disability equitable practice can create change to end violence
  • Referral services which can assist in responding to WWD who experience violence
  • Strategies and tools to prevent violence against WWD
  • Participant feedback:“[This training] opened up conversation on gender equality, bias, assumptions, and how this relates to every day practice.”

“[I now have] more knowledge about the alarming facts about violence against women and factors which perpetuate this.”

The training is co-facilitated with an expert in violence prevention and a woman with a lived experience of disabilities. It is evidence-based, aligning with the latest research on disability, Our Watch’s Change the Story, and the Preventing Family Violence & Violence against Women Capability Framework.

Cost: $95 – 175
