2018 Conference information
This one-day conference was an opportunity for leaders, policy makers and professionals working to prevent violence against women to gain a deeper understanding of the Respectful Relationships intiative's implementation to date and consider what systems need to be in place to embed primary prevention initiatives in workplaces, universities, primary health, sports or media.
It was a fantastic networking opportunity with exceptional speakers. The day included panel discussions and plenary sessions about planning and statewide design, connecting with the response service system, community partnerships and communication and backlash.
