Women’s Health Grampians offers a series of locally developed and delivered training sessions to CoRE member agencies.

Training sessions build knowledge and skills across staff, volunteers and members regarding sexism and discrimination. Sessions also cover what organisations can do at a policy and systemic level to prevent violence against women and advance gender equality. Our training is informed by the latest research and evidence.

Sessions can be offered online or face to face (depending on COVID restrictions). To ensure training is interactive, online sessions are capped at 18 attendees. For further information or to discuss scheduling please contact your Regional Consultant or Women’s Health Grampians.

The learning is well worth it. It needs to be compulsory in all workplaces.

Really good to talk through what role we can actively play in stamping out the incorrect behaviours
