Achieving Generational Change – Primary Prevention of Violence Against Women Conference

Achieving Generational Change

The Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria's primary prevention of violence against women (PVAW) conference will look at the statewide rollout of respectful relationships across Victorian schools and explore how learnings from this can inform the scale up of PVAW initiatives across other settings.

This one-day conference is 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.

Along with a fantastic networking opportunity and exceptional speakers the day will include panel discussions and plenary sessions about planning and statewide design, connecting with the response service system, community partnerships and communication and backlash.
