Featuring guest panelists including DVAC CEO Amie Carrington, the discussion will examine the role of women’s specialist services and identify why they’re so important, and answer questions from the public.
Despite the trend of generalising services to women, women’s specialist services continue to not only achieve better outcomes for women escaping violence, but also to confront gender inequality as the root cause of the problem. Urgent investment is needed – in the right places – to ensure women and children have universal access to the full suite of services they need to be safe in both the short and long term.
Please join Julie Oberin AM, National Chair of WESNET, and guest panellists, to examine the role of women’s specialist services and identify the core reasons why they are so important.
Guest panellists include:
- Karen Bentley, CEO, WESNET
- Nicole Lambert, Vice Chairperson, National Association of Services Against Sexual Violence
- Amie Carrington, CEO at Domestic Violence Action Centre
- Helen Campbell OAM, Executive Officer at Women’s Legal Services NSW
- Michal Morris, CEO, inTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence
- Mali Hermans, Senior Policy Officer at First Peoples Disability Network (Australia).
We hope you can join us.
