“Evidence in Action”: National Research Conference on Violence against Women and their Children,

The theme for ANROWS’s National Research Conference on Violence against Women and their Children is “Evidence in Action”. 

This conference will open up opportunities to explore ideas of impact, including how we know an initiative has been effective, for whom, and in what circumstances. Coming together with policymakers, practice designers and survivor-advocates, we will discuss the ways in which evidence is being applied in policy and practice to reduce violence against women and their children.
Conference structure:  An online symposium
After postponing our face-to-face conference in April 2020, we have  reimagined a more affordable, more accessible and interactive online symposium.

Set over five days, the conference is structured around thematic conversational panels, each including facilitators with diverse backgrounds and expertise.

By using specialised online conference technology and limiting the number and duration of sessions on each day, the new program re-energises important conversations, encourages mutual learning and connections, offers options for flexible attendance and ensures you have a chance to truly contribute and share ideas.

This format offers unique opportunities for conference participants to engage in discussion and to contribute to our understanding of what is making an impact, and how we understand the gaps and challenges in the continuing work to reduce violence against women and their children.
