Introduction to Preventing Violence Against Women (PVAW) – Foundation course
Do you understand the link between everyday sexism and violence against women?
Are you passionate about creating a world free from violence against women but unsure where to begin?
If this rings true, then our new Introduction to Preventing Violence Against Women (PVAW) – foundation course is the program for you.
Upon its completion you will have a toolkit of information and strategies to take action in your workplaces and everyday life, or to kick start your career in preventing violence against women.
Understanding the link between gender inequality, everyday sexism and violence against women can be challenging. From the outside, the prevention world can look like a complex landscape, filled with language and concepts leaving many of us unsure about where to begin and how we can take effective action.

Our course cuts through the jargon leaving you with the confidence, knowledge and tools to either kick start your prevention career, or play a more active role in your professional and personal life to help end violence against women.
