- Leading Change Breakfast | Ararat | 2014
On Thursday 31st July it was great to see so many people brave a cold morning and an early start in Ararat to hear Minister Mary Wooldridge, North Melbourne Assistant Coach Darren Crocker and Chief Commissioner Victoria Police Ken Lay speak about leading change in the prevention of violence against women in the community and workplace.
We had 150 business and community leaders from Ararat, Ballarat, Horsham Yarriambiack, Bannockburn and Melbourne including local government, community services and businesses including A.M.E Systems and Gaysons.
Feedback from the breakfast was very positive with a lot of people taking away the powerful message ‘the standard you walk past is the standard you accept’ and feeling inspired to speak up when witnessing discriminatory language or behaviour. Planning is now already underway for the next forum to be held in March 2015 in Hepburn Shire.
