COVID-19 update on training delivery

Women’s Health Victoria will continue adjust and change our ways of working in order to meet the needs of our service users, partners and stakeholders whilst safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, program participants and stakeholders during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Therefore, our upcoming Masterclasses: Gender Transformative Practice scheduled to run 23rd April 2020 & Storytelling for Change scheduled to run May 7th, 2020 have been postponed.

Subject to ongoing monitoring of government health advice, we have rescheduled these masterclasses to the following dates:

Thursday 25th June: Gender Transformative Practice

Monday 29th June: Storytelling for Change

Registrations for our upcoming public training remain open at this time but acknowledge that this is a rapidly changing situation and we will continue to monitor guidance from the Victorian Government on a daily basis. 

We will advise if training sessions need to be further postponed or cancelled. Please note that in the event of cancellation, full refunds will be provided to registered participants.

Women’s Health Victoria hosts events throughout the year on women's health issues, with an emphasis on our priority areas.

Our events bring together key stakeholders and influencers to explore existing and emerging issues in women's health, promote gender equity and prevent violence against women.

Women’s Health Victoria also delivers training and workshops that build the capacity of health and social services, public sector agencies, corporate and not-for-profit workplaces, policy makers, planners, service providers and individuals to improve women's health and wellbeing and to bring a gender lens to their work.

Women's Health Victoria offers a select number of complementary tickets for staff of Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations for each of our workshops and training programs. Please contact for more information
