Welcome

Thank you for joining us at the 2019 DVNSW conference

Imagining a World Without Gendered Violence (5- 6 September 2019)

This year, the DVNSW conference will provide insights into domestic and family violence, sexual assault and gendered violence with a strong focus on inclusive learning from the expertise of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LBGTIQ+, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities, People with Disabilities and those with lived experiences.

We’ve listened to feedback from DVNSW members. You told us that you want a program with workshops, plenaries, panels and opportunities for learning. You told us you want space to discuss policy and develop better advocacy skills. We have developed a program to cover this and best of all we’ve kept it at a reasonable price. Oh and the food will be hot!

This conference is an opportunity for our sector to come together. DVNSW’s conference is designed specifically for our members and our sector. This year once again we’ve tried to bring together the best of academia, practice, policy, inspiration and advocacy from NSW and beyond.

Imagining a world without gendered violence will challenge participants to think about responding to and preventing violence without silos and the roles we can all can play to create a future free of violence.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
