SPEAQ Women’s Advocacy Professional Development Day
A Special Event
Women’s Advocacy is an essential component of men’s domestic and family violence intervention programs. It is a distinct and specialised role within the DFV sector, and presents unique challenges and rewards.
This first ever full day professional development event for Women’s Advocates has been designed and developed by advocates for advocates, to meet the diverse professional development needs of workers in this specialist role.
It will be a day of connection, support, reflection, practice development and sharing of information and practice wisdom in a tranquil setting at the foothills of Mt Coot-tha.
And we're proud to say that this is the first event of it's kind in Australia!
Catering: Morning and Afternoon Tea and Lunch are included.
Venue: Mercy Place is a tranquil venue located in the foothills of Mt Cootha, backing onto bushland and overlooking Brisbane. It's a lovely place that we have returned to for SPEAQ professional development events several times.
