PiP Webinar – Keeping primary prevention of violence against women on the agenda: Learning from local government

Councils work with people across all life stages and across a number of settings including health, the arts, sport and recreation and community strengthening. From filling local library shelves with books that resist gender stereotypes to implementing mentoring programs to equip more women to run for local government, many Victorian councils have taken significant steps toward embedding the prevention of violence against women into everything they do.

Join us as we sit down with the Mayor of the City of Darebin, the Municipal Association of Victoria’s Kellie Nagle and experienced prevention practitioners from both metro and regional councils to talk about:

  • The role of local government in preventing violence against women, and how this has changed over the last decade
  • How local government has harnessed creativity to embed prevention across different areas of the community and service provision
  • Tips for keeping prevention of violence against women and gender equity work on the agenda in the current COVID-19 context

This webinar is for anyone working or interested in the primary prevention of violence against women.
