Why you should attend in 2016

This conference is the next in our Ending Domestic & Family Violence series. Here’s why you should attend in 2016:

We’ve done our research

We’ve spent months talking to you about what should be covered in this conference. You said to focus on the areas where there are the biggest challenges, silos and gaps. We’ve listened and designed this conference accordingly.

We’ve structured things a little differently

We’ve added lots of panels and opportunities for interactivity. This means you’ll get the the chance to hear from more people in a more engaging way.

You’ll hear from the people behind the world’s best policy for ending violence against women and girls

That’s no exaggeration! We’re pleased to announce a presentation from the people behind the Duluth Model which received the 2014 Future Policy Award for Ending Violence against Women & Girls from the World Future Council & UN Women.

Who will attend?

Senior representatives from government and the police, justice & community sectors with responsibility for:

• Domestic/Family Violence

• Women

• Children & Young People

• Housing & Homelessness

• Families

Free Passes

Free passes are available for representatives of very small not-for-profit organisations and interested members of the community. To apply, please email lindsey.eifler@criterionconferences.com

Against Women

Pre Conference Workshop A

• To explore the emotional dimensions of engaging men in men’s violence prevention

• To understand the place of engaging men in violence prevention in the context of the wider policies and practice of violence prevention

What you will take away by attending

• Knowledge of best-practice approaches to engaging men in violence prevention

• Practical strategies for use in the practice of engaging men in men’s violence prevention

• An awareness of the benefits and the dangers of engaging men in men’s violence prevention
