WIRE congratulates the Vixen Collective spokesperson Dylan O’Hara, Founder and...
The training focusses on providing an increased awareness of intersecting barriers to economic security for women before, during and after disasters such as bushfire, and what workers can do to address these barriers in gender sensitive, strengths-based and trauma-informed ways. This training has been developed in consultation with both impacted women and financial counsellors and capability workers in affected areas.
We have the following dates scheduled for free training:
Intersectional Economics in Disaster Contexts
Gender, Disaster and Financial Wellbeing: Providing gender sensitive, strength based service to women before, in, and following Disasters
Check out our events calendar for more info.
The project also developed a checklist of essential financial considerations for women before, during and in the recovery from disaster, such as bushfire. This is a tool that individuals can use themselves, or that financial counsellors and financial capability workers can guide clients through.
This project is funded by the Office for Women (Department of Families, Fairness and Housing), through Bushfire Recovery Victoria.
