Past topics have included: influential leadership; business and funding models for the new environment; building person-centred services; connecting with government and strategic communications. Inspiring speakers from government, academia and the social service sector have included former Victoria Police Commissioner Christine Nixon and Co-founder of the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria, Roz Ward.
Applicants must be working in a senior role in family violence prevention or response, or a related sector such as child and family services, homelessness, alcohol and other drug, financial support and disability services, health, local government, justice and education.
