Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS), with the support of VicHealth, is hosting a webinar on the National Community Attitudes towards Violence Against Women Survey (NCAS).
This webinar will interest those working in the prevention of violence against women in a range of settings, from policy and practice to education and advocacy. If you’ve ever found it difficult to find the evidence you need to challenge commonly held myths around violence against women or explain the link between violence against women and gender inequality, this webinar will help.
The webinar includes:
- an overview of the NCAS and its findings
- a discussion of how the survey can be useful in your work through practical examples
- information about the exciting changes and new components of the next NCAS
- Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
This webinar is an opportunity to (re)familiarise yourself with the NCAS, find ways it can be applied to your work, and begin considering how the next wave of NCAS will further support what you do. About the NCAS The NCAS is the world’s longest-running survey of community attitudes towards violence against women, with the first survey taking place in 1987. It has a sample of over 17,500 people across Australia. No other survey can tell us as much about Australians’ attitudes to violence against women and gender equality. It tells us how people understand violence against women, their attitudes towards it, what influences their attitudes, and if there has been a change over time. It also gauges people’s preparedness to intervene when witnessing violence or its precursors.
Date: Wednesday, 7th March, 12pm – 1pm AEST
