Global Rights for Women Forum: Practice Conversations
Continuing the conversation - local and global ideas in ending violence against women.
Workers in the sexual violence, women's health and wellbeing and domestic violence sector who took part in the recent 'Global Rights for Women forum' at Logan are invited to join us online for a series of practice conversations.
Facilitated by Melissa from Global Rights for Women, this series in a opportunity to continue to deeply explore the topic areas discussed at the forum with colleagues in a safe and supportive environment. The series will be led by the people who engage with the series so we ask that you contribute on enrolment by letting us know what you would like to delve into more deeply.
The series will be delivered online, using Zoom and we invite you to engage fully, with cameras on and a willingness to participate in breakout groups. The series is open only to people who attended the Global Rights for Women forum at Logan in March 2023 and will focus on topics delivered at that forum.
