Welcome to Darebin’s New Family Violence Network Convenor

Jade Myconos is the new Gender Equity Officer at Darebin Council and part of her role is the Convenor of Darebin’s Family Violence Network.

Jade’s experience includes 16 years of combined local government and community services senior management and front-line work experience in family violence, women’s homelessness, community mental health services, volunteer and disability sectors.

Prior to her current role, Jade was Darebin’s Community Development Officer (Economic Participation), Access and Inclusion at Darebin, working collaboratively with a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders to advance the economic participation of people with disability in Darebin.

To fuel all of this, Jade runs on a steady diet of bad humour, music, art, walking the dog and eating chocolate!

Family violence networks meet monthly or bi-monthly to discuss a range of activities and services in their local region regarding responding to family violence, prevention and profiling the issue.
