April 26th – Re-thinking advocacy: reflecting on the politics of advocacy and our roles as advocates in working with women subjected to domestic violence.

Presenter: Lisa French

This half-day workshop offers a space to explore the socio-political location of advocacy and for workers to make sense of their roles as advocates-in-systems, responding to the violations of women subjected to domestic violence.

There will be an opportunity to consider:

  • Reflecting on your role as advocates
  • Advocacy as a political act within a feminist framework
  • Tensions and dilemmas when advocating within systems
  • Micro practices of advocacy

Lisa has worked in the field of violence against women for 10 years. Her work includes direct practice working with women and survivors of domestic and family violence in cross-sector settings including community, government and court spaces. Lisa is a passionate trainer and facilitator who has facilitated many workshops on supporting an understanding of gender equality and domestic and family violence, using a feminist framework to shape her work. She has run programs on gender equity and identifying and responding to domestic and family violence for a range of organisations, including community, local council and larger government departments, and has also worked in the field of research and evaluation in the family services space.
