Gendered Cyberhate: Enhancing Online Safety for Women
The Gender Equity Victoria Enhancing Online Safety for Women Project is a world-first project funded by the Victorian Government that works with individuals and organisations using social media, and moderators of online discussion forums, to address gendered cyberhate. This innovative project is focused on increasing support in online forums, social media and workplaces for individuals who challenge dominant gender norms, behaviours and practices.
Building the Pool of Qualified Trainers Experienced in the Prevention of Violence Against Women Program
This Gender Equity Victoria Program responds to an urgent need to meet the upcoming demand for qualified prevention of violence against women (PVAW) trainers to deliver vocational education units in PVAW, gender equity and responding to family violence and other forms of violence against women. The program aims to increase the number of PVAW practitioners in rural and metropolitan Victoria who can deliver and assess accredited vocational units of study. As a part of this program we are offering scholarships to assist PVAW and Gender Equity trainers to complete their Certificate IV TAE 40116 in Training and Assessment. Program participants also have opportunity to build their training skills and knowledge through a new Community of Practice.
PVAW Workforce Capacity Building
The PVAW Workforce Capacity-Building Project is a professional development project funded by the Victorian Government.
This two-year project works with intermediate and advanced practitioners in the Prevention of Violence Against Women (PVAW) field. The project grew from the Government’s recognition of the complex skill-set required to deliver PVAW projects and activities, and the need to ensure a strong workforce exists to effectively deliver initiatives, as well as to support and mentor new workers into the field.
