This full day masterclass aims to build participants’ confidence and skills to undertake effective monitoring and evaluation as part of their primary prevention of violence against women and family violence work. This workshop explores the key theoretical approaches and practice frameworks that guide primary prevention evaluation in Victoria, supporting participants to reflect on their own practice and experience. Participants are supported to unpack some of the key challenges to putting this work into practice and will work together to explore opportunities to overcome these challenges.
This workshop is designed for experienced practitioners working in the primary prevention and gender equality sectors. It is also relevant for evaluators seeking to build their understanding of the specific skills and knowledge required to evaluation primary prevention initiatives. Participants will be supported to reflect on and draw from their own practice experience and knowledge throughout the workshop.
Participants are required to have a strong understanding of violence against women, primary prevention, Change the Story, the causes/drivers of violence against women as this content will not be covered in the workshop.
