Building from strength: transforming systems and improving outcomes together

20/03/2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Family Safety Victoria’s Centre for Workforce Excellence, in partnership with the Future Social Service Institute, is pleased to invite you to a free one-day forum.

The forum will showcase innovative leadership and practice in responding to family violence from across the sector. It will be a chance to hear from experts and sector leaders, and to be involved in dynamic workshops focused on leading change to improve outcomes in family violence.

 The forum will feature:

  • An international keynote address by Barbara MacQuarrie, Community Director of the Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children at The University of Western Ontario. Barbara will focus on Canada’s response to family violence, including Project VEGA.
  • Renowned comedian Nelly Thomas as Master of Ceremonies.
  • Workshops led by sector leaders and experts on leading practice change.

Participants will have the opportunity to choose from a number of breakout sessions which will enable them to deep dive into topics that are most relevant to them. We will be in touch with forum registrants closer to the date to provide the program and details about how to register for the breakout sessions.

Who should attend: Senior managers, practice leaders and principal practitioners from the specialist family violence sector and other services that intersect with family violence.

Refreshments: Morning tea, lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please advise of any dietary requirements when you register.

Order of proceedings: Refer to the Family Safety Victoria web page for program updates.
